Jerusalem (AP) — Israeli aircraft carried out a series of airstrikes on Wednesday at a militant site in the Gaza Strip. This is the first air raid since last month’s war with Hamas militants ended with an unstable ceasefire.

Israeli airstrikes targeted the facilities Hamas used for the meeting to plan the attack, military said, accusing radical groups of violence emanating from Gaza.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

On Tuesday, hundreds of Israeli transnationalists paraded East Jerusalem with a show of forces proclaiming “death to the Arabs” and threatening to cause new violence. In response, Palestinians in Gaza fired balloons that reportedly caused about 10 fires in Israel.

The conflict and parade brought early challenges to Israel’s new Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett. Naftali Bennett has sworn this week to replace Benjamin Netanyahu, who had led the country for almost 12 years.
