For the second time in three days, on Thursday evening the Israeli army bombed buildings in the Gaza Strip in response to the firing of balloons into Israeli territories by armed groups in the Strip. For the time being, no deaths or injuries have been reported. Israel had already bombed the Gaza Strip in the night between Tuesday and Wednesday: these were the first bombings since the oath of the new government led by Naftali Bennett and the truce stipulated about a month ago after a brief war in May.
The launch of incendiary balloons from the Gaza Strip was itself a response to a nationalist demonstration organized by the Israeli right in Jerusalem on Tuesday to commemorate the conquest of the city in 1967 after the Six Day War. On Thursday morning some Palestinian groups continued to protest against the demonstration in East Jerusalem and were pushed back by Israeli police with sound grenades and water jets.
