Israeli Military Launches a Brutal Assault on Gaza, Kills 10, Injures 60 Palestinian Civilians


Israeli warplanes and tanks attacked, on Friday, in two separate onslaughts, a number of sites in the besieged Gaza Strip, killing ten and injuring at least sixty Palestinian civilians, the Ministry of Health confirmed.

Among the deceased are a five year old girl, identified as Alaa Qaddoum, a 23 year old woman, in addition to a leader in the Islamic Jihad movement, identified as Tayseer Mahmoud al-Jabari.

Al-Jabari was killed when Israeli forces fired missiles into an apartment in the “Palestine Tower” which is a residential building in the Rimal neighborhood, in Gaza City, in the northern Gaza Strip.

Military jets fired missiles at a vehicle in the Shujaiya neighborhood in Gaza City, killing two civilians who were in the car, one of whom was identified as Alaa Qaddoum, 5, and a 23-year-old young woman.

In the town of Al-Fukhari, east of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, several civilians were injured when Israeli warplanes fired missiles at two sites, in addition to causing fire and damages.

Military tanks fired artillery shells at agricultural land, east of Beit Lahia and Beit Hanoun in the north, as well as in the central Gaza Strip and east of Khan Younis, causing damage to homes in the vicinity.

The military wing of the “Islamic Jihad” movement, known as the “Al-Quds Brigades”, announced that it fired at least 100 rockets towards Tel Aviv and areas surrounding the Gaza Strip, in retaliation for the military assault.

Hebrew sources said that “the Gaza rockets reached Bat Yam, Rishon Letzion, and Holon, in the vicinity of (Tel Aviv).”

Many of the rockets were intercepted by the so-called “Iron Dome” missile defense system, and some rockets penetrated it, striking a number of Israeli targets.

Furthermore, on Friday night, Israeli military aircraft fired another round of missiles into the Al-Shaaf neighborhood in Gaza City, causing five injuries, including three children.

The wounded civilians were transferred to hospital for medical intervention.

Additionally, occupation warplanes fired at least 15 missiles at the Sheikh Ajlin area, in the south, in addition to bombing the Jabal Al-Kashef area and the Ezbet Beit Hanoun area in the north.

Warplanes fired missiles to the west of Khan Younis and to the west of Rafah both located in the southern Strip, while reconnaissance drones were reported to be flying at low altitudes over Khan Younis.
