Israel carries out airstrikes targeting Gaza - report

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have fired a series of rockets late Sunday, targeting the Palestinian Islamic Jihad sites in Gaza, the Times of Israel reported citing the Hamas-affiliated, al-Resalah television channel.

The strikes were conducted as a response to "arson balloons" launched at Israeli civilians earlier on Thursday, which have sparked several fires in the southern area of the counrty.

On Sunday afternoon, after the arson attacks, Israel announced it was cutting the Strip's fishing zone in half, meaning Palestinian fishermen can now operate on up to 6 nautical miles from the coast.
