The IDF Spokesperson's office confirmed on Wednesday that a short while ago it fired at a cell in Gaza that was attempting to launch an incendiary balloon into Israeli territory.

There are no reports of Palestinian casualties.

Overnight Palestinian terror groups fired 45 missiles towards Israel. At least five of them landed in Israeli border communities. Israel in response carried out extensive airstrikes on Hamas targets.
