Israeli jets strike 9 targets in Gaza in response to ‘fire kites’

Israeli Air Force jets have carried out a series of strikes on Gaza, in retaliation to alleged arson attempts and “explosive kites and balloons” being launched at Israel.

The Israeli Army said in a statement that it holds Hamas responsible for “everything in and out of the Gaza Strip” and that the organization “will bear the consequences” of its actions or inactions.

Local sources said that rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian resistance factions in response to the Israeli attacks. Sirens were reportedly heard in Israeli settlements adjacent to the coastal enclave.
