The Israeli military said airstrikes in the early hours of Sunday targeted a weapons-manufacturing facility and an underground tunnel belonging to Hamas, according to the Associated Press news agency.
“The overnight attack continues progress to prevent the buildup of forces,” the Israeli army said in reference to Hamas, the AP reported.

The Gaza airstrike follows outrage over the killing of a Palestinian youth, 23-year-old Ammar Mufleh, by an Israeli soldier in broad daylight on Friday and who was captured on video. The heartbreaking images have sparked widespread anger among Palestinians and calls on social media to increase resistance against the Israeli occupation.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned the Mufleh shooting as tantamount to an execution, and Palestinian activists and social media users have adopted the hashtag “Huwara Execution” in Arabic, calling for a response to the Israeli forces’ crimes.
The European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, issued a statement saying he was “very concerned about the rising level of violence in the occupied West Bank.”
“In the last few days alone, 10 Palestinians have been killed by the ISF (Israel Security Forces). Yesterday’s tragic murder of a Palestinian man, Ammar Mifleh, by a member of the ISF (Israel Security Forces) was the latest example,” Borrell said.
“These unacceptable facts must be investigated and there must be full accountability. Under international law, deadly force is only justified in situations where there is a serious and imminent threat to life,” he said.
The increase in violence has made 2022 the deadliest year since the end of the second intifada in 2005, with at least 207 Palestinians killed in the occupied Gaza Strip, West Bank and East Jerusalem so far this year.
