Israeli occupation aircraft bombed observation sites in the Gaza Strip on Sunday for the third consecutive day, Palestinian security sources have said.
According to the Israeli occupation forces, the air strikes were in response to Palestinians protesting near the nominal border fence between the apartheid state and the besieged territory and the launch of incendiary balloons towards Israeli settlements. Palestinian protesters have also thrown stones at Israeli soldiers in their armoured vehicles or behind sand berms.
The Palestinians were protesting for the ninth day on Sunday in several sites along the fence within the Gaza Strip. The protests against the 17-year-old siege imposed by Israel on Gaza are also in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners and those facing Israeli brutality in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
Israeli media reported that the incendiary balloons caused three fires on Sunday in farms near Israeli settlements close to the Gaza Strip.
