Israel Strikes 2 Hamas Posts After Aerial Incendiary Devices Sent From Gaza

Israel struck in Syria on Saturday night, targeting an area near the airport in Damascus, Syrian state media reported.
Israel struck two Hamas posts in the Gaza Strip in response to the numerous incendiary and explosive aerial devices flown into southern Israel on Sunday, the Jerusalem Post reported. 

Earlier on Sunday Israeli citizen was lightly injured after an incendiary aerial device flown from the Gaza Strip landed in his field.
According to authorities the farmer sustained injuries to his hand after a balloon carrying a Molotov cocktail fell in his field outside Kibbutz Be’eri the Eshkol Regional Council. 

Several hours earlier an explosive device carried by a cluster of balloons launched from the Hamas-run coastal enclave was found in a field in southern Israel on Sunday, the morning after violent protests along the security fence.
The device, which landed in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council in southern Israel, was removed by police sappers and caused no damage or injuries.

The explosive device was flown into Israel the morning after violent riots along the security fence with Gaza and hours after the Israel Air Force struck two Hamas positions in the southern Gaza strip in response to “the multitude of explosive devices that were thrown and exploded during the night” by rioters.

One of the devices triggered incoming rocket alert sirens in the community of Kissufim in the Eshkol Regional Council. The device fell inside Gaza, according to a statement released by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
