The Israeli Air Force carried out, on Tuesday at night, several airstrikes targeting three areas in Gaza city, the Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, and east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

Media sources said the air force fired at least two missiles at a site, southwest of Gaza city, causing excessive property damage.

They added that the army also fired a missile at another site, west of the Nusseirat refugee camp, in central Gaza.

In addition, the army fired at least one missile into a site, east of Khan Younis, also causing excessive damage.

The Israeli strikes did not only damage their targets, but also caused property damage to several surrounding homes.

The Israeli army said it carried out the airstrikes in retaliation for flammable balloons, launched from the Gaza Strip.
