Israeli planes have bombed sites belonging to the militant group Hamas in Gaza for a fifth consecutive night, according to the Israel Defense Forces.The military said early Sunday that the airstrikes were in response to incendiary balloons that Hamas-affiliated groups had sent across the border from Gaza into Israeli territory.

Clashes also erupted in the evening along the Gaza-Israel border, the army said. A statement released by the IDF said dozens of Palestinians burned tires and threw explosive devices and grenades at the security fence as they attempted to approach it.

Gaza’s health ministry said two protesters were injured by Israeli fire.

Over the past week, Israeli forces have carried out repeated nightly strikes on targets linked to the Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza.
