At least 253 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since March 2018 the majority shot during weekly border protests and others hit by tank fire or air strikes in response to violence from the Gaza Strip

Against a background of ongoing tensions on the Israel-Gaza border, an attack balloon flown into Israel was found to be armed with an anti-tank missile warhead. Air raid sirens blare.

IDF fighter jets and other aircraft struck several Hamas targets, including a military compound in the north of the strip and two naval vessels belonging to the group, the army said in a statement.

The rocket fire came hours after Israeli aircraft attacked several Hamas military targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday night, hours after a projectile was sacked towards southern Israel, the IDF said.

Security officials in Gaza said the strikes had not caused any casualties.

There were no injuries or damage.

Despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's warning to Hamas earlier this week, that renewed aggression in Gaza will be met with severe response, violence at the border has continued to simmer.

Egyptian officials, who have frequently brokered ceasefires between Israel and Hamas, have been shuttling between the sides to try to restore calm, a Palestinian official told Reuters.

Lakers forward Brandon Ingram likely to miss rest of season
Cowherd saw Ingram's injury as a way for the Lakers to tank in a Twitter post that has now been deleted. He has averaged 18.3 points, 3.0 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 52 games this season.

In the month leading up to the anniversary there has been a marked increase of Hamas-led violence along the border, during the day and at night, with explosive balloons and improvised explosive devices hurled at troops or placed on the fence.

According to the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, 267 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza Strip since March 30. Previous balloons sent from Gaza have tended to contain incendiary rather than powerful explosive devices.

On Friday, one Palestinian was reported killed after engaging in violent border demonstrations.

Palestinians have staged weekly protests near the border with Israel as part of the Great March of Return protests, which began in March past year. A rocket was later fired from the Strip toward Israel.

At least 50 of those have been identified as Hamas members.

Qidra also said that 48 Palestinians had been wounded by Israeli gunfire, including four medics, two women and 15 children.
