Israeli airstrikes target sites in northern Gaza Strip

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes out airstrikes across the besieged Gaza Strip, on predawn Thursday, allegedly in response to the launch of incendiary balloons by Palestinians, according to a statement by the Israeli army.

Hebrew-language news outlets said that Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes, targeting several Hamas movement sites, located in northern Gaza.

An Israeli army spokesperson said that the airstrikes “came in response” to alleged incendiary and explosive balloon launches by Palestinians from Gaza towards southern Israel.
One incendiary object, which was allegedly launched from Gaza, caused a small fire in an open field in the Eshkol Regional Council.

The spokesperson added that the Hamas movement “is fully responsible for the situation in Gaza.”
No injuries were reported.
