“Israel” Attacks Gaza in Response to Fire Balloons
By Staff, Agencies
“Israeli” aircraft bombed the Gaza Strip on Saturday in response to incendiary balloons launched from the Palestinian enclave, the “Israeli” entity’s military said.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the attack.
A social media post by New Press publication, showed streaks of lights coming from Gaza, as shots were fired targeting “Israeli” planes in retaliation of the attack.
New Press also reported that three sites were targeted by the “Israeli” entity including Beit Hanoun and Jabalya.
Since a May 21 ceasefire ended 11 days of “Israeli” aggression, Palestinians in Gaza have sporadically launched balloons laden with incendiary material across the border, causing fires that have burned fields in the “Israeli”-occupied territories.
The incendiary balloons have been used previously in response to the tightening of the entity’s blockade on the coastal enclave, after new restrictions were issued during the entity’s bombardment of Gaza in May.
But on Friday, balloons were again launched from Gaza, causing at least four brush fires in areas near the entity-Gaza frontier.
The “Israeli” military said its air raids were in “response to continual launches of incendiary balloons from Gaza into ‘Israel’ throughout the day”.
The blazes along the Gaza frontier broke out on Friday as the “Israeli” entity separately traded fire over its northern border with Lebanon’s Hezbollah, in a third day of cross-border salvoes.
