Israel on Monday night launched airstrikes against Gaza, claiming that incendiary balloons from the Palestinian enclave caued fires.
Blaming Hamas for the balloons, the Israeli army said it had targeted locations belonging to the group that controls the Gaza Strip.
“Overnight, IDF fighter jets struck a Hamas rocket manufacturing workshop, as well as a Hamas military compound in Khan Yunis,” the Israeli army claimed in a statement.
“The strikes were in response to Hamas launching incendiary balloons into Israeli territory,” the statement further claimed.
Witnesses said that the army had also fired artillery at the north of Gaza.
According to medical sources in the Palestinian enclave, no one was killed.
