The Israeli Air Force fired, late on Saturday at night, many missiles targeting sites run by armed resistance groups in several parts of the Gaza Strip, after the army alleged that a balloon, carrying an anti-tank shell, was flown from Gaza.
Palestinian media sources said the Israeli Air Force fired a missile at Asqalan site, in northern Gaza, and shortly afterwards fired two more missiles, causing excessive damage.
They added that the army also fired missiles into Al-Waha site, the same center, which was bombarded less than 24 hours earlier, causing serious damage.
Furthermore, the Israeli Air Force fired missiles into a building, used by the Palestinian Fishermenâs Syndicate, west of Deir al-Balah, in central Gaza, causing damage.
Israeli sources quoted the army stating that a âsuspicious balloon which was launched from the Gaza Strip into the Sdot Negev Regional Council of settlements, was carrying an anti-tank shell.â
They added that the device did not explode, and was safely defused by police sappers.
