A short time ago, the Israeli Air Force struck a squad of incendiary balloon launchers in the northern Gaza Strip, the IDF said in a statement on Thursday.

According to the IDF, the launchers were located next to Beit Hanoun, which is near the Israeli town of Sderot.

The IDF routinely strikes outposts used to launch incendiary kites and balloons into Israel, which have set scores of Israeli farmland ablaze in recent months.
