Israeli air force strikes multiple targets in Gaza in response to ‘explosive balloons’


Israel has carried out a series of airstrikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, in retaliation for multiple explosive and incendiary balloons launched from the enclave over the past few weeks.

The targets included an alleged “weapons production site and a military compound,” the IAF said amid reports of explosions in the central Gaza Strip, as well as near Khan Younis in the south.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Earlier on Saturday, a rocket propelled grenade attached to several balloons was found in the Negev Desert some 70 kilometers from the Hamas-controlled Palestinian enclave, according to Israeli media.

Israel Defense Forces vowed to “continue operating against attempts to harm Israeli civilians.”
