No casualties from the airstrike have been reported so far.

After the raid, which lasted several hours, media reported that the two parties managed to reach an agreement under Egypt's mediation.
On Saturday, a top-level source in Jerusalem told Sputnik that Hamas had agreed to accept Israel's demands and stop clashes between protesters and the police in the border area, as well as halt launches of arson balloons.
