Israel confirms it launched attack on the Gaza strip on the ‘military compounds belonging to the Hamas terror organisation’. Israeli Defence Force claims that the airstrikes were in response to the ‘arson balloons’ sent by Hamas into southern Israel.
Israel carried out air strikes on the Gaza Strip early Wednesday after militants in the Palestinian territory sent incendiary balloons into the south of the country, in the first major conflict between the two sides since a flare-up in May in which hundreds were killed.
The strikes were the first under the new coalition government headed by Naftali Bennett, who took over on Sunday after ousting former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
