Palestinian activists in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip launched another wave of explosive-laden balloons at Israel on Tuesday.

It came after the Israel Defense Forces struck terror targets overnight on Monday in response to incendiary devices that caused multiple fires in southern Israel.

The IDF also reported that Hamas fired machine guns into Israel that resulted in additional airstrikes, reported the AP.

The violence comes as Egypt has been trying to negotiate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, and in the backdrop of Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett leaving for the United States to meet U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday.
