Israel bombed more Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip overnight for one day in response to previous launches of incendiary balloons and multiple rockets on Israeli territory.
“During the day, explosive rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel,” the army said in a message on Twitter. “In response, our militants have just attacked Hamas’ infrastructure in Gaza that was being used to build tunnels,” he said, promising that the army “will continue to act as necessary against any attempt to harm Israeli civilians.”
According to the Jerusalem Post newspaper, Israeli aviation attacked a concrete factory used by Hamas to build its underground tunnels. According to this media, which quoted a military spokesman, in addition to the fire balloons, three rockets were intercepted from the Gaza Strip against Israel on Thursday.
Following the relative calm resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, Palestinians this month stepped up cross-border attacks from the Gaza Strip, including the launch of arson balloons that burned agricultural land in southern Israel in what authorities are calling “balloon terrorism”. “.
Israel stopped fuel deliveries last week and closed its border crossings with Gaza in response to the attacks, closing the territory’s only power plant due to a lack of fuel. It has also restricted the fishing area off the coast of the Gaza Strip.
