Dozens were injured or wounded in a clash between Israeli forces and protesters on the Israeli-Gaza border on Saturday.
Israel made further air strikes on the Gaza Strip on Monday. According to a Palestinian security source, the air strikes caused material damage, but not personal injury.
The Israeli military said in a statement that its fighters had carried out attacks on targets of the extremist organization Hamas. At least one of the sites mentioned by the military was located near a civilian settlement and a local school. It said the attacks were a response to Hamas’ balloon attacks on the Israeli side, which had ignited fires in southern Israel.
The attacks targeted Khan Younis and Jabalia in the Gaza Strip.
Blockade affects the daily lives of Palestinians in Gaza, about the size of Espoo. Israel decided to block the area in 2007 after Hamas rose to power in Gaza.
Dozens were injured or wounded in a clash between Israeli forces and protesters on the Israeli-Gaza border on Saturday. Among the seriously wounded is a 13-year-old Palestinian boy and Israeli police.
