IMEMC & Agencies: The Israeli Air Force has escalated its aggression against the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip, and conducted dozens of air strikes targeting different areas in the coastal enclave.

The attacks led to massive property damage, while various areas in the Gaza Strip lost power after electricity poles and power generators were hit in the attacks.

 

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that dozens of explosions were heard, especially in agricultural and open areas, in different parts of the coastal region.

It stated that Rafah, Khan Younis, the Central District, and northern Gaza have been targeted in more than 30 attacks carried out by the Israeli Air Force and Israeli navy ships.

Although some of the bombarded areas are training centers for armed resistance groups in Gaza, many civilian homes, property and structures were hit.

Maan News said that the army also bombarded a resistance center for the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, west of Khan Younis.

Maan added that the army carried out at least 13 air strikes, targeting resistance camps belonging to the al-Qassam Brigades, the al-Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad, and Salah Ed-Deen Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, in different parts of the Rafah district.

The army also shelled open areas and vacant resistance camps in northern Gaza, including a center for the al-Qassam Brigades in Beit Lahia.

The Israeli attacks caused excessive property damage to several buildings and structures, including a number of homes.

Spokesperson of the Ministry Of Health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qodra, said the Israeli attacks caused no human casualties, and called on Palestinians to remain alert, as the army will likely carry out further strikes.
