Earlier on Sunday morning, the Israeli army struck with a missile an empty auto in eastern Gaza city with no injuries reported. No injuries were reported on either side.

Explanatory notes of the bill say that local "anti-Israeli" NGOs, as well groups affiliated with the "Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions" (BDS) movement, spend days around "soldiers eagerly awaiting activity that could be documented in a biased way and used to defame them".

IDF policy until now had been to fire warning shots and prevent incendiary balloons and kites from entering Israeli airspace.

The Israeli army said in a statement it hit two alleged observation positions belonging to the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas.

According to the Israeli army, the targeted vehicle was used by what it called "the leader of a cell that launches incendiary kites and balloons into Israel".

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired at least three rockets at Israeli communities along the border in the early hours of Monday morning as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) pounded Hamas targets in the enclave following numerous arson attacks the day before.

Ronda Rousey suspended from RAW after violent outburst
The intensity Rousey showed in the angle on Monday night hopefully carries over when she returns to television in a month. As noted, RAW General Manager Kurt Angle announced on this week's show that Ronda Rousey has been suspended for 30 days .


Israel says any such return would mean the end of it as a Jewish state and accuses Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas of using protesters as human shields.

The army warned that it had the "intelligence knowledge and operational capability" to conduct additional strikes if the balloon and kite attacks continued.

On Saturday evening, two Palestinians were injured after an Israeli military drone fired a missile at Palestinians allegedly flying burning kites from central Gaza. No Israelis have been killed.

In recent weeks, Palestinians have sent kites dangling coal embers or burning rags across the Gaza border to set fire to arid farmland and forests, others have carried small explosive devices in a new tactic that has caused extensive damage.

The two sides have fought three wars since 2008 and observe a tense ceasefire.
