GAZA, October 5, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes against several targets in the Gaza Strip last night, in yet another act of aggression against the besieged coastal territory, media sources reported.
The aerial assaults, which were launched in the early hours of Wednesday morning, reportedly hit multiple areas in and outside the city of Gaza, resulting in partial damage. However, there were no reports of casualties.
Israeli media said the Israeli air force struck Hamas military facilities in the Gaza Strip’s north early on Monday in response to rocket fire from the enclave.
Last year, Israel launched a relentless war on Gaza which claimed the lives of about 2,200 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and left more than 10,000 injured. Hundreds of thousands others are currently displaced and live in makeshift caravans or in UNRWA-run schools.
Since 2007, Israel has imposed a blockade on Gaza, which has caused a serious decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
