Night in the area of al-Shagaya, East of Gaza city destroyed the vehicle of the leader of one group of arsonists. "This is terrorist activity that endangers the lives of southern residents and has damaged large amounts of land", the military said.

Moments before the rocket attacks, the IDF attacked nine Hamas targets in the northern Gaza Strip including two military compounds and a weapons manufacturing facility in response to the launching of incendiary airborne devices across the border into Israel.

The military says its drones have been able to shoot down more than 90 per cent of the kites and flaming balloons, and that it will continue targeting them.

The Gaza Strip is controlled by the Islamist movement Hamas which Israel considers its chief enemy.

The group calls itself "The Sons of Zouari" - referring to Hamas's chief drone expert and engineer Muhammad Zouari, who was assassinated in Tunisia in an operation blamed on the Mossad, Israel's foreign intelligence agency in 2016.
