The shelling was a response to the launch of balloons with incendiary substances from the territory of Gaza in the direction of Israel.
The Israeli Air Force carried out a series of airstrikes on various targets of Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip. This was reported on Saturday, July 3, by the Palestinian radio station South Al-Aqsa.
According to Israeli media, the airstrikes were a response to the launch of balloons with explosives from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli cities.
It is noted that the targets were located in the northern and central parts of the Gaza Strip.
Recall that on the night of Friday, July 2, the Israeli army also attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. Also in mid-June, the Israeli Air Force launched strikes on Gaza. Then, in particular, the training camps of the militant wing of Hamas were attacked.
