Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes targeting a resistance site belonging to the Hamas movement, overnight, in western Khan Younis, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said Israeli Apache warplanes targeted the al-Tal resistance site, in western Khan Younis, with five missiles.

No injuries were reported, according to Al Ray.

The Israeli army claimed that the airstrikes were due to the launching of flaming balloons towards Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians in Gaza view the flaming kites and balloons as a form of protest against Israel’s nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees’ right of return to their homes and lands, which are now known as Israel.
