- Israel Bombs Hamas Sites in Gaza Over Fire Balloons: Military
Palestinians say the balloons aim to pressure Israel to ease its blockade on the besieged territory.
Israeli warplanes have bombed Hamas sites in Gaza in response to incendiary balloons launched from the Palestinian enclave that caused brush fires in southern Israel, according to its military. There were no immediate reports of casualties in the air attacks that targeted what the military said early on Tuesday was a weapons production facility and a rocket launch site belonging to Hamas, the group that governs Gaza.
In a statement, the Israeli army said fighter jets attacked “a Hamas weapons manufacturing site in Khan Younis as well as terror tunnel entrance in Jabalya”. “A Hamas underground rocket launch site that is located adjacent to civilian homes and a school in Shujaiya, was also struck,” it added, saying “the strikes were in response to Hamas launching incendiary balloons into Israeli territory”.
Since an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire halted 11 days of Israel-Hamas fighting in May, groups in Gaza have sporadically sent incendiary balloons into Israel, drawing Israeli raids on Hamas facilities. Palestinians say the balloons aim to pressure Israel to ease restrictions on Gaza and permit aid to reach the territory.
