The Gaza Strip on Thursday endured a third day of violence.
Palestinian militants sent incendiary balloons into southern Israel for the third straight day, while Israeli airstrikes hit sites in Gaza for a second time.
The exchanges stopped short of full-scale escalation, and so far, no casualties have been reported on either side.
Watchers say Israel's new government, just a few days old, wants to show the balloon attacks will be met by a military response.
