Last night, warplanes of the Israeli Air Force carried out strikes on 9 targets allegedly belonging to the Palestinian Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said.

According to the IDF, the targets were located in two military compounds and weapons manufacturing site of Hamas.

The IDF said that the strikes had been conducted “in response to arson and explosive kites and balloons that’ve been launched into Israel”. On June 16, the IDF wounded two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip attempting to launch incendiary balloons across the contact line into the Israeli-held area, according to the Israeli side.

The IDF has repeatedly said that it helds Hamas responsible for all “violence emanating from the Gaza Strip”. At least 130 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed by Israeli gunfire during the last escalation of protests. No Israelis have been killed.
