The IDF has struck several targets in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday evening, in a response to the renewed launching of incendiary balloons from the Strip into Israeli territory, the IDF reported.
Balloon terrorism has returned in recent weeks with several launches at communities in the Gaza vicinity. One incendiary balloon was reported to have been found in the Eshkol Regional Council on Tuesday. Residents reported the incident to security personnel, and an examination conducted on the ground found the balloon not to be a threat. A message in Arabic was attached to the balloon.
Shortly after, the IDF launched an initial airstrike, attacking the position from which the balloon was launched, in the northern Gaza Strip, followed by another strike, the IDF spokesperson reported.
