Israel carries out air strike on Gaza over balloon bombs, rockets

The Israeli army has said it carried out air attacks against Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip on Sunday in response to rocket attacks and firebombs sent into Israeli territory attached to balloons.

The raids come after clashes broke out on Saturday evening along the Gaza-Israeli border, the army said.

The Israeli army said dozens of Palestinian “rioters burned tyres, hurled explosive devices and grenades towards the security fence and attempted to approach it”.

Over the past week, Israeli forces have carried out repeated night-time attacks on targets linked to Hamas, the group that governs the Gaza Strip.
