Israel has launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in response to incendiary balloons launched from Palestinian territory.
Tensions began simmering in East Jerusalem Tuesday when thousands of Israeli nationalists marched through the area, testing Israel's new government.
Palestinians responded by launching explosive balloons causing multiple fires in Israel.
The airstrikes targeted militant sites in Gaza and could threaten the recent ceasefire.
