GAZA: Israeli warplanes have carried out fresh attacks in the Gaza Strip, targeting Hamas.
According to European media, Israeli forces claim that balloons laden with incendiary materials were sent to Israel from Gaza and this action was taken in response. A Hamas spokesman confirmed the Israeli attacks and said the Palestinian people would continue to defend and resist their religious sites and rights.
Details of the casualties were not immediately available. These were the first Israeli attacks since the fierce fighting that lasted for 11 days a few weeks ago and then the ceasefire.
