Israel-Hamas clash in November 2018 – an Israeli special forces unit entered the Gaza Strip on a secret mission on Nov. 11, 2018, and exchanged fire with Palestinian terrorists after being exposed. An Israeli lieutenant colonel and 7 terrorists – including Hamas Commander of Khan Yunis Nour Barakeh – were killed in the exchange. Following the incident Hamas fired hundreds of missiles at Israeli civilian targets, wounding a number of Israelis and killing a Palestinian worker in Ashkelon, and Israel bombed a number of terror targets in Gaza. A ceasefire was reached on Nov. 14, 2018.
