Israel claims the attack was in retaliation to the firing of so-called incendiary balloons from Gaza into bordering Israeli towns causing fire in the fields.
The attacks came after an Israeli crackdown on hundreds of Palestinians who demonstrated near the fence separating Gaza from Israel on Saturday evening, in protest of the 14-year Israeli blockade. At least two Palestinians were killed and several others injured during the protest.
