GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military planes carried out airstrikes targeting a group of Palestinians in eastern al-Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City in the central besieged Gaza Strip on Thursday evening.

A Ma'an reporter confirmed that there were no reports of injuries.

According to Israeli Hebrew-language media, the airstrikes came in response to the dozens of incendiary balloons and kites launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli illegal settlements.

Sources added that 17 fires broke out in Israeli areas bordering the Gaza Strip on Thursday, as a result of incendiary balloons and kites.

Israel had bombed a Palestinian vehicle allegedly belonging to a Hamas movement member a few days ago to which Gazan resistance groups responded with firing 13 rockets at Israeli towns surrounding the Gaza Strip.
