Israel's F16 warplanes raided on Friday night an open area in the northern Gaza Strip which caused no damages or injuries, witnesses and paramedics said.

Israel's airstrike came hours after militants in Gaza fired a homemade rocket from the northern Gaza Strip into southern Israel, which caused no damages or injuries, Israel Radio said.

Meanwhile, the regular protests against Israel's West Bank wall turned into clashes between protesters and Israeli soldiers. A Palestinian was injured and dozens inhaled tear gas during the clashes in the West Bank, medical sources in Ramallah said.

The weekly protests took place in the village of Bel'ein, west of Ramallah, where around 150 residents backed by international solidarity movements' activists joined the demonstration.

They chanted slogans against the separation wall that Israel builds in the West Bank and then clashes with the Israeli army forces, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters to disperse the protestors.

Israel said that it built the wall to prevent Palestinian infiltrators from entering Israel to carry out attacks against the Israelis, while the Palestinians said that the wall had been built on the properties of the Palestinians in the West Bank.
