An Israeli warplane on Tuesday targeted a group of Arabs east of Beit Hanoun in the southern Gaza Strip, firing one missile at them while they were launching incendiary kites into southern Israel.
Also on Tuesday, Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of yards south of Gaza City, razing and leveling the soil as part of the installation of an underground wall blocking terror tunnels. A Ma’an reporter said that four Israeli bulldozers entered near the camps used by Arab rioters, with military drones flying overhead.
