The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) struck multiple Hamas targets over the weekend in response to arson balloons launched from Gaza; Saturday’s strikes follow Thursday’s targeting of a Hamas weapons production facility.
In the second occurrence of IDF strikes in Gaza this week, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) targeted more Hamas military sites on Saturday in response to militants sending incendiary balloons into Israel. On Thursday, the IAF hit a Hamas weapons production facility.
Saturday’s strikes targeted another weapons production facility inside the Strip, as well as a rocket launching pad. Back in May, Hamas and Israel engaged in a 10-day volley wherein the Iranian-sponsored terror proxy fired 4,300 rockets into the Jewish state.
According to one report, the recent balloon attacks resulted in a fire on the Israeli side of the Gaza border on Saturday. Thursday’s balloon attacks resulted in four fires.
