Several hours later around midnight, a barrage of rockets was sacked by Palestinian-Islamists in Gaza Strip toward Israel's southern communities. the IDF confirmed that five projectiles were fired. The reasons are now being investigated. Over the past few weeks, numerous Israeli drones have been downed both in the besieged Gaza Strip and in Lebanon. According to the army, a drone launched from southern Gaza had crossed into Israeli airspace, dropped "what seems to be an explosive device" near the security fence and damaged a military vehicle before returning to Gaza.

A security official said the Israeli military has been restraining itself and refraining from retaliating to such cases because it does not want to become embroiled in a new war in Gaza before the elections.

The strikes were in response to a drone attack from Gaza.

An Israeli aircraft targeted the squad that launched the drone, but there were no injuries in that raid. The Israel Defence Forces said approximately 6,200 Palestinians participated in what the army called "especially violent" protests.
