The Israeli military said it struck a group of Palestinians who launched incendiary balloons from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel.
The airstrike comes a day after 24 Palestinians were reported wounded by live Israeli military fire on Monday during clashes near the Gaza border. The wounded were taken to nearby hospitals, Gaza's Health Ministry said, and dozens suffering from teargas inhalation were treated at the scene.
According to the IDF, 2,000 Palestinians demonstrated for several hours near the border in northern Gaza.
Earlier Monday, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said Israeli aircraft fired at a Hamas position in southern Gaza after two Palestinians placed an explosive charge near the border fence. There were no casualties in the incident.
The Israeli military confirmed on Sunday its aircraft struck a group of Palestinians in northern Gaza throwing firebombs toward Israeli territory. There's no word on casualties from the strike.
