THE Israeli military has struck a Hamas target in the northern Gaza Strip.
Israeli military said in a statement issued on Sunday that the strike was in response to the continued launches of explosives-laden balloons from the Palestinian territory into Israel.
According to the statement, an aircraft struck a Hamas observation post in northern Gaza.
Israel and Hamas have fought three wars and numerous smaller flareups since the Islamic militant group seized control of Gaza in 2007.
Though there were no immediate reports of injuries on either side, the enemies have largely observed an unofficial truce in recent months.
