The IDF struck targets in the Gaza Strip late Monday night and into Tuesday morning after 10 fires were sparked by incendiary balloons launched into Israel from Gaza, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit confirmed. IDF fighter jets had struck a weapons production site in Khan Younis, a terrorist tunnel in Jabaliya and a rocket-launching platform in the Shejaiya neighborhood of Gaza City, which was located in a civilian area near a school, the IDF said.

In response to machine-gun fire from Gaza that was heard in Israel, the IDF carried out an additional strike on a Hamas terrorist tunnel in Khan Younis. The strike was in response to the firing of incendiary balloons, which "proved once again that the terrorist organization Hamas continues to lead and degenerate Gaza into a terrorist state," the IDF said, adding that they will continue to strongly respond to further attempts at terrorism and that it holds Hamas responsible for everything that happens in Gaza.
