Israeli Warplanes Bombard the Gaza Strip


The Israeli military bombarded, on Saturday at dawn, two separate areas of the besieged Gaza Strip, causing damage but no casualties, local sources have reported.

Southwest of Gaza City in the northern part of the strip, “Israeli F-16 warplanes, and other unmanned aerial vehicles, took turns bombing the Al-Baydar site, affiliated with the Palestinian resistance… on the sea coast,” according to Quds Press correspondent.

He added that the warplanes fired 8 missiles which struck the targeted area, destroying the site completely and causing damage to nearby civilian homes.

Resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip fired anti-aircraft missiles to counteract the attacks, which Hebrew sources confirmed, stating “a surface-to-air missile was fired at an Israeli Air Force plane during the raids on Gaza, without causing any harm.” A different source stated that 10 missiles were fired at the site.

Meanwhile, in the central Gaza Strip, west of the Al-Nuseirat refugee camp, military aircraft fired 2 missiles at the site, causing total destruction and damaged nearby civilian homes. Another source stated 3 missiles struck the site.

An occupation army spokesperson alleged that the airstrikes were aimed at a facility located underground, used for producing rockets.

The army added that the military assault was in retaliation for the alleged firing of 2 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, on Friday night, which it claimed struck open land in the southern part of Israel.

The spokesman stated, “Warplanes attacked a large site of Hamas, which contains an underground workshop for the production of rocket materials in Gaza, in response to the firing of two missiles several hours ago on Ashkelon.”

He added that the army holds the Hamas government of the Gaza Strip responsible for inside as well as outside the strip, claiming that it has sovereignty of the Gaza Strip.

This claim is questionable, given the fact that the Israeli occupation has occupied the West Bank and Gaza since 1967 after the 6 Day War, and Israel has kept the Gaza Strip under a strict air, land and sea blockade since 2007.

The besieged Gaza Strip is a densely populated place, with a population of 2,108,000 people (as of 2021) on a total area of land spanning 365 square kilometers.
