Israel carries out new airstrikes on besieged Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes have carried out several airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, targeting a number of areas in the north and the northwest of the coastal enclave.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) Palestinian media reported on Wednesday night that one of the airstrikes targeted a position belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas. The attack caused an explosion and material damage to the nearby buildings.


Another attack targeted areas in Jabalia and Beit Lahia in Gaza’s north.


Meanwhile, the Israeli military claimed that the attacks were in response to a rocket launch by Palestinians. It also announced that it had intercepted two of the alleged four incoming projectiles via Iron Dome missile system.


Last month, Israeli warplanes, choppers, and navy boats conducted a series of attacks on the Gaza Strip, targeting several positions in the north, west and south of the besieged enclave.


The attacks were reportedly aimed at the positions of the Hamas, including its "military complexes."


There were no immediate reports of casualties from Gazan authorities as the sites were empty.


Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007.


Since 2008, Israel has waged three wars against Gaza, where two million Palestinians live under a 12-year Israeli blockade. Thousands of Gazans have been killed in each of these deadly wars.
