The IDF said that an IDF aircraft fired towards a vehicle that served a terrorist squad for launching arson balloons and a separate group of terrorists, also balloon launchers from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel on Sunday afternoon.

Palestinian medics said four people were wounded in the strikes.

Tensions along the Israel-Gaza fence have escalated since Hamas launched regular protests in the area in late March.
