Once again Israel attacks the Palestinian Hamas movement, which they consider to be terrorist, this in response to the launching of explosive balloons and rockets from the Gaza Strip against Israel.
The Israeli Military Defence has attacked several targets considered by them as terrorists in Gaza, including a military group belonging to Hamas.
The day before, Israel had carried out another air strike on the strip, against targets of Hamas’ underground infrastructure.
Ground attacks were also carried out, targeting observation posts.
It should be noted that the explosive balloons launched from Gaza caused 39 fires in Israel on Tuesday.
Thousands of Israelis were forced to flee to shelters after sirens were activated in the city of Ascalon, which they targeted with a rocket after talks to contain the violence in the south, intervened by Egypt, failed.
