Terrorists in Gaza opened fire on an Israeli army vehicle Sunday, as it traveled along a road adjacent to Israel's border with the southern Gaza Strip.

Soldiers inside the vehicle, belonging to the IDF Engineering Corps, reported hearing shots fired at them, and after eventually disembarking to inspect it identified several bullet marks.

No soldiers were injured in the incident. The army says it is examining the incident.

It is the latest in a string of sporadic breaches of the ceasefire between Israel and Islamist-ruled Gaza. Both Hamas cells and - more commonly - smaller jihadist terrorist groups aligned with ISIS have been involved in small arms and rocket-firing incidents targeting soldiers and civilians in southern Israel.
