Israel has carried out a number of airstrikes on Gaza in the past few days, with Palestinians having responded by launching several rockets into the occupied territories.

Tel Aviv claims the attacks are in retaliation for Hamas' alleged launch of "incendiary balloons" allegedly directed toward the occupied territories.

Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007.

Since 2008, Israel has waged three wars against Gaza, where about two million Palestinians live under a 12-year Israeli blockade. Thousands of Gazans have been killed in each of these deadly wars

Tensions have escalated in the region since US President Donald Trump unveiled his so-called Middle East peace plan last Tuesday.
