Gaza, MINA – Israeli fighter jets launched two airstrikes in Gaza Strip on Sunday morning after fire balloons were flown from the Palestinian territories.

In a statement, the military said that the attack targeted two Hamas posts in the coastal area.

According to reporters from Anadolu Agency (AA) quoted by MINA, Israeli warplanes attacked a post in the Al-Awda refugee camp, east of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip. There were no fatalities in that attack.

Palestinian activists have flown kites and fire balloons as part of ongoing anti-occupation protests along Gaza-Israel border zone.

According to Israeli officials, the fire balloons have caused a number of fires in Israeli settlements, causing significant property damage, but did not result in death or injury.

Since March last year, more than 250 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more wounded by gunfire by Israeli soldiers during the protests.

Demonstrators in the protest action ‘Great March of Return’ demanded the right to return their hometowns in Palestine. (T/Sj/R04)
