The Israeli army announced that its warplanes attacked military compounds in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, after launching incendiary balloons from the Strip into southern Israel.
The occupation army said in a statement that it was “prepared for all scenarios, including renewed fighting” in the face of what it called the continuation of terrorist acts emanating from Gaza, after launching incendiary balloons from Gaza, which the Israeli Fire Department said caused about 20 fires in open fields near the border.
And Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has previously announced that his government should not tolerate the launching of incendiary balloons, and must respond if Hamas launches missiles at Israel.
Eyewitnesses said that Israeli warplanes bombed two training sites belonging to the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, one in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, and the other south of Gaza City, while no casualties were reported at once.
Today, Wednesday, Hamas media spokesman Hazem Qassem considered the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip a failed attempt to stop our people’s solidarity and resistance with the holy city.
Qassem said in a tweet via his Twitter account that the bombing came “to cover up the unprecedented state of confusion for the Zionist establishment in organizing the so-called flag march.” “Our people and their valiant resistance will continue to defend our rights and sanctities until the occupier is expelled from all of our land,” he added.
On the other hand, Israeli media reported that the aircraft take-off and landing route was changed and an alternative route was used at Ben Gurion Airport for several hours as part of the security alert.
Navigational data showed a change in the path of planes coming to the airport as a result of the security tension resulting from the march of Israeli flags in occupied Jerusalem.
Hamas had threatened to take action in response to the march of Israeli extremists on Tuesday in Jerusalem.
march of flags
Yesterday, Tuesday, extremist settlers organized a march of flags in the occupied city of Jerusalem, after security tightened by the Israeli occupation authorities, accompanied by dozens of arrests and attacks.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said that 33 Palestinians were injured in confrontations with the occupation forces in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The atmosphere of anger resonated in different parts of the Palestinian territories, where Gaza witnessed several events, and youths demonstrated in Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron in the West Bank, before they were subjected to repression by the occupation forces.
