On Monday morning, Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes against Hamas military sites in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian and Israeli sources.

The Israeli response came on the heels of Hamas continuing to launch incendiary and explosive devices attached to balloons towards Israel. On Sunday, 28 fires resulted from these balloons launched from Gaza at Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev, and Eshkol in southern Israel, according to Israeli security sources.

Israeli warplanes targeted dozens of military sites belonging to Hamas, in response to the launch of the explosive-laden balloons.

Palestinian security sources said that Israeli artillery attacked two Hamas sites in the eastern cities of Rafah and Khan Younis, while warplanes struck an agricultural land in Khan Younis. No injuries were reported, but the attack caused considerable material damage in the targeted areas.
