GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli air forces conducted three airstrikes in the southern Gaza Strip early Sunday morning before dawn, according to official sources.

Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for the Hamas movement in Gaza, told Ma’an that Israeli forces targeted three sites northwest of Rafah city in the southern Gaza Strip, causing property damages.

The sites belonged to the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas movement.

Barhoum said the strikes were intended to “terrorize civilians.” No injuries were reported after the strikes.

Meanwhile, Israeli media reported that the strikes were conducted in response to four Palestinians who had entered Israel from the Gaza Strip and attempted to torch heavy engineering equipment that was being used for the construction of an underground separation barrier between Gaza and Israel.
