Tensions between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas flared again after Hamas launched incendiary balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israel, a month after a cease-fire. Hamas said the balloons were meant to protest an Israeli march in east Jerusalem.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the march and the Israeli airstrikes that followed came just days after new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet took office.
There were no reports of casualties in either the airstrikes or the fires. They were the first clashes between Israel and the Palestinian militant group that controls Gaza since a cease-fire ended an 11-day conflict that left almost 300 people dead, most of them Palestinians.
