Israeli airstrikes target Hamas sites in Khan Younis

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- 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.

A Ma'an reporter said Israeli Apache warplane targeted the al-Tal resistance site, in western Khan Younis, with five missiles.

No injuries were reported.

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

Hebrew-language news sites reported that several Hamas military sites were targeted with airstrikes.

Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites 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.
