GAZA, July 20 (UPI) -- Hamas said Tuesday it detonated an explosive charge under an Israeli armored personnel carrier in Gaza as Qassam rockets were fired at Israel.

There was no comment from the Israeli side on the reported incident.

Israeli military sources said al-Qassam rockets were fired at positions in the Negev desert but caused no casualties.
