GAZA (Dispatches) – Zionist drones and fighter jets carried out several strikes on Saturday morning in the besieged Gaza Strip, causing heavy damage.
A drone fired one missile at the center of the Gaza Strip, followed by four other missiles fired by fighter jets that destroyed the site and caused a fire.
In the southeast of Gaza City, a jet fired two missiles at a Malaka site, east of the Zaytoun neighbourhood, destroying the whole area of the Field Control Forces.
A drone fired two missiles north of Beit Lahiya and a third east of Beit Hanoun, north of the Gaza Strip, destroying security sites and damaging nearby homes.
Balls of flame shot into the air, leaving dark smoke drifting over the territory, after the strikes.
The report added that a drone struck a location north of Beit Lahiya city in the northern Gaza Strip, completely destroying it and causing damage to nearby homes.
Another site east of Beit city on the northeast edge of the Gaza Strip also came under a drone strike, and was reduced to rubble.
The Zionist regime’s army said in a statement that its aircraft hit a number of targets belonging to Hamas resistance movement. No immediate reports of casualties in the aerial assaults were available.
The statement added that the strikes were conducted in response to a rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave towards the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon.
The developments came after three young Palestinians were killed and 12 others wounded on Friday during an Israeli army raid on the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin.
The men were killed when Zionist troops opened fire on a vehicle in which they were.
Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem has strongly denounced the airstrikes.
He stated that the aerial assaults are an extension of the Tel Aviv regime’s acts of aggression against Al-Quds city and elsewhere in the occupied Palestinian territories – the last of which was the assassination of three resistance fighters from the city of Jenin.
Qassem emphasized that the occupying regime is desperately and unsuccessfully attempting to suppress the rising revolutionary spirit throughout Palestinian lands by means of such vicious attacks.
