Israel Strikes Hamas Targets in Gaza After Explosive Balloons Cause Damage
JNS.org – Israeli jets reportedly struck numerous Hamas posts in the southern Gaza late on Wednesday in response to a small bomb that was attached to a bundle of balloons that flew from Gaza into Israel, damaging the front window of a home in the Eshkol area a few hours earlier.
No casualties have been reported.
Some of the targets hit by Israel are believed to be tied to Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the terrorist organization’s armed division.
The Israel Defense Forces confirmed the retaliation.
Take a close look at this picture.
The front window of this Israeli home was shattered by explosives attached to balloons that were launched from Gaza. Terrorists in Gaza have been launching balloons like these for almost a year.
