GAZA (Dispatches) – The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas condemned on Friday the airstrikes by the Zionist regime on the Gaza Strip.
Hazem Qassem, Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said in a press statement that attacking the Gaza Strip while Muslims were having their suhoor meal before fasting "is condemned.”
Earlier on Friday, eyewitnesses said the Zionist regime’s warplanes struck different positions in central and southern parts of the Gaza Strip.
The eyewitnesses said huge explosions were heard following the airstrikes. The sources said no injuries were reported, but damage was caused in the targeted posts and facilities.
The Zionist regime’s military also conducted a number of ground attacks against two locations in the besieged territory, calling the assaults a response to an alleged rocket fire.
The Palestinian Shahab news agency said the regime’s gunnery targeted an area east of the Juhor ad-Dik Village in northern Gaza Strip.
Some of the officials told Sky News Arabia that the alleged projectile had come down in the city of Sderot in the south of the occupied territories.
Palestinian resistance groups carry out occasional retaliatory rocket attacks against the occupied territories from the sliver that has been under a crippling blockade by the Zionist regime since 2007 and has experienced three full-scale wars by the regime.
The regime uses the incidents, which seldom leave considerable material damage not to mention any casualties, to take Gaza under fresh bombardment.
