That didn’t take long huh?
Overnight, tensions between Israel and Hamas erupted into violence, posing a potential threat to the brief period of peace reached between the two just weeks ago.
Israeli jets struck two targets in Gaza early Wednesday. In a tweet, which included a video of the attack, the Israel Defense Forces said its “fighter jets struck Hamas military compounds last night, which were used as meeting sites for Hamas terror operatives. Hamas will bear the consequences for its actions.”
The IDF said it’s “prepared for any scenario, including a resumption of hostilities, in the face of continuing terror activities from the Gaza Strip.”
It’s unclear if there are any injuries or deaths tied to the airstrikes.
The IDF launched this attack evidently in retaliation for a series of incendiary balloons that were launched by Hamas hours before. The balloons caused at least 20 fires on Israel’s southern border.
