IDF Hits Gaza Terror Targets After Arson Attacks, In First Raids Since Ceasefire

After two dozen fires in southern Israel, army says it struck Hamas ‘terror sites’ in Khan Younis and Gaza City; initial Palestinian reports say none injured

By TOI staff and Judah Ari Gross   

The Israel Defense Forces carried out a series of airstrikes throughout the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning in response to over two dozen fires in southern Israel caused by incendiary devices launched from the coastal enclave.

This was the first exchange between terror groups in Gaza and the IDF since last month’s 11-day conflict in the Strip.

The IDF said it was prepared for the possibility that fighting may again break out between Israel and the enclave.

Footage posted by Palestinian media outlets in Gaza showed explosions lighting up the sky in both the northern and southern Strip overnight Tuesday-Wednesday, with reporters saying sites belonging to Hamas’s military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, were among those targeted.

No Gazans were injured in the strikes, the Hamas-affiliated Palestinian media center initially reported.
