According to Arab reports, at least one terrorist was eliminated in one of the strikes targeting firebomb-launchers.

The strikes came as several fires broke out in southern Israel due to firebomb-terrorism and one day after 200 rockets were launched by Hamas into Israel.

Earlier today, a Hamas terrorist blew himself up near Shifa tower in central Gaza, in what appears to be a ‘workplace accident’.
