The Israeli army on Thursday deployed two Iron Dome anti-missile batteries in two areas close to the Gaza Strip, a day after Israel's artillery shelled the Palestinian enclave, Israeli sources said.

Israel Radio, meanwhile, quoted the Israeli army as saying in a statement that the two batteries were deployed in Beersheba and Netivot settlement in southern Israel close to the border with the Gaza Strip.

A member of Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Palestinian faction Hamas, was killed in southern the Gaza Strip on Wednesday in an Israeli artillery attack in the area.

Palestinian factions signed a cease-fire agreement with Israel on August 26, following a 51 day Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip during which more than 2,160 Palestinians were killed and some 11,000 injured.

At least 73 Israelis – 68 soldiers and five civilians – were also killed during the offensive, according to Israeli figures.
