A day after launched missiles from Gaza dropped in the Mediterranean Sea, Israel’s military has said conducted airstrikes on Hamas facilities in Gaza.

The airstrikes late Saturday struck a Hamas missile production facility and a military post, according to the Israeli military.

The ceasefire, which Egypt as well as other mediators negotiated, has been weak.

When Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007, the organization says Israel didn’t actually take serious moves to relieve the embargo it enforced with Egypt’s assistance.

On Sunday, the Israeli military said in a tweet

As fireworks lit up the skies to celebrate NewYear2022 around the world, a different type of fire came from Gaza-terrorist rocket-fire toward Israel.

Israel In response, we just struck Hamas sites in Gaza, incl. a rocket manufacturing site & military posts used for terrorist activity.

Although it was uncertain whether the rockets being fired from Gaza on Saturday were targeted at Israel, Gaza-based groups occasionally test-fire missiles toward the Mediterranean.

The strike on Saturday did not result in any casualties, according to reports. The army confirmed in a declaration that no sirens were heard and that Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense technology did not launch.

In the May attack on Gaza, over 260 Palestinians, many of them civilians and children, were massacred, along with 13 Israelis, as Israel launched a continuous missile attack across the coastal region, provoking Gaza forces to launch rockets at Israeli cities.

Israel maintains a siege on Gaza, preventing Palestinians from leaving the territory, which really is home to two million people. The region is likewise subject to Egyptian limitations. The measures are based on Hamas threats, according to both parties.
