BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – Israeli warplanes launched heavy strikes over the Gaza Strip this evening, hitting a number of sites across the region.

According to Palestinian activists, the airstrikes caused massive explosions that could be felt throughout Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a tweet this evening: “Explosive balloons were launched from #Gaza into #Israel throughout the day.”

They added: “In response, our fighter jets just struck infrastructure belonging to Hamas in Gaza used to construct tunnels.”

Tonight’s airstrikes by the Israeli Defense Forces mark the tenth day in a row that they have targeted the Gaza Strip.

The strikes were primarily concentrated on the Khan Younis area, which is located in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
