Israel launches new airstrikes on Gaza after Palestinians send balloons into southern Israel in a besieged enclave.
The Israeli air force launched airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning after the besieged Palestinians fired shots into the encircled enclave into southern Israel.
In a statement, the Israeli military said it was attacking Hamas units and that it was “ready for all scenarios, including new fighting in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Gaza.”
It was not immediately clear whether there were any casualties as a result of the bombings.
The airstrikes mark Israel’s first major outbreak of “Gaza” since the May 21 ceasefire, which ended an 11-day Israeli offensive in the area that killed 256 Palestinians, including 66 children, Gaza officials said. Twelve people were killed in Israel by rockets fired from the enclave.
