airstrikes on Gaza
This is the second time this week that Israel has carried out air strikes in the Gaza Strip. Israel said it had launched an air strike on Friday morning in response to an explosive-laden balloon. This was reported by CNN in the United States and Haaretz in Israel.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that explosive-laden balloons sent from Gaza had caught fire in at least eight places in southern Israel adjacent to Gaza. In response, airstrikes targeted Hamas installations in Khan Younis and Gaza City in the Gaza Strip on Thursday night.

According to Haaretz, IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Aviv Kochavi has called on the military to prepare for a new war against Gaza.

Haaretz added that a siren sounded in the Israeli community near Gaza on Friday morning after an airstrike on Thursday night.

Israel broke the ceasefire and launched its first air strike on Gaza on Wednesday. He was attacked again in less than 48 hours.

Earlier in the day, the IDF claimed that at least 20 explosive-laden balloons from Gaza had caught fire in the first attack since the ceasefire was broken.

Jewish processions in Jerusalem sparked renewed tensions. On May 10, Israelis marched in celebration of the day of the occupation of East Jerusalem. Last month's 11-day Israeli airstrikes in Gaza and Hamas rocket attacks in Israel did not trigger a war. Last Tuesday, the Israelis took out such a procession in Jerusalem. Israeli police have arrested a number of protesting Palestinians for leaving the streets empty for the procession. Rubber bullets were also fired at Palestine.

Last month, at the end of Ramadan, Muslims gathered at the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on the occasion of Jumatul Bida, and locals, including Israeli police, attacked Muslims. This caused a terrible clash in the whole mosque premises. The protests began in the Gaza Strip. Hamas launches rocket attacks. Israel also carried out airstrikes in Gaza. At least 256 people, including 66 children, were killed in 11 days of Israeli airstrikes. Twelve people have been reported killed in Hamas attacks in Israel.
