Israeli jets have launched new airstrikes on the Gaza Strip after the group launched rockets and mortar shells at Israeli territory, the Israeli military claimed.

Three Palestinians were injured during the strikes in the early hours of Wednesday, residents said. The exchange was one of the most intense recent barrages of rocket fire and air strikes.

No casualties were reported in Israel. The Israeli military said its Iron Dome anti-missile shield intercepted seven rockets.

Israel has carried out air raids in the Gaza Strip over the past few weeks, saying it was retaliating for Palestinians allegedly setting fire to Israeli land.

In recent weeks, Palestinian protesters allegedly used flaming objects attached to kites to set fire to agricultural land just over the border fence with Israel.

Over 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli troops during mass demonstrations and more than 13,000 have been injured along the Gaza border since March 30.

Israel’s tactics in confronting the weekly Friday protests have drawn international condemnation.
