This incident follows a tension-filled week between Israel’s Islamic Jihad and Palestine.

After Israel killed Islamic Jihad commanders there and three Palestinian militants were also killed in Gaza, three days of non-stop fighting broke out.

At least 49 people were killed and 300 others were injured in Gaza.

Israel did not report any deaths or serious injuries.

Many were concerned that the latest violence in Gaza would lead to the fifth war in Gaza since the militant group Hamas took control of the local administration back in 2007. However, a temporary peace was achieved before Sunday’s shooting.
