“Israeli” warplanes carried out airstrikes early Wednesday on positions in the Gaza Strip belonging to the Palestinian resistance group Hamas. 

The “Israeli” army said in a statement that it targeted Hamas compounds, including in the al-Yarmouk area east of Khan Younis city.

It also bombed a position in the Zeitoun neighborhood.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has not provided any information on whether there are any casualties.

- First attack since cease-fire

The “Israeli” army also said in its statement that the airstrike was carried out in response to the sending of incendiary balloons from Gaza into southern Israel.

The airstrikes were the first since a cease-fire was reached between “Israel” and Hamas on May 21.

An Egyptian-brokered truce that took effect in the early hours of May 21 ended “Israel’s” 11-day bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

The “Israeli” attacks in Gaza and the West Bank killed at least 289 people, including women and children, and left behind a trail of destruction. Health centers and media offices as well as schools were among the structures targeted.
