Isreal strike Gaza after Border Bombs

An aircraft targeted Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Sunday after Palestinians threw explosive devices at the border fence during “riots”.

The health ministry in Gaza announced the death of a Palestinian wounded previously in clashes with Israeli forces.

The Army said, Palestinians in Gaza had thrown a number of explosive devices toward the border fence with Israel, one of which set off air raid sirens in the south of the country late Saturday.

A statement by the military read; “In response to multiple explosive devices that were hurled and exploded during Gaza riots near Israel’s border fence this evening, an IDF aircraft targeted two Hamas observation posts in the southern Gaza Strip.”

On Friday, two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in separate border clashes.

And on Saturday, the Israeli army launched two separate airstrikes against groups of Palestinians in Gaza who had allegedly flown balloons rigged with explosives into Israel.

The Gaza health ministry said two Palestinians had been wounded.

At least 258 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since weekly border protests began nearly a year ago.
