IMEMC & Agencies: Friday at dawn, Palestinian medical sources have reported that at least six Palestinians, have been injured, in a series of Israeli air strikes targeting different parts of the Gaza Strip.

Ashraf al-Qodra, spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, stated that six Palestinians, including four children, were moved to a number of hospitals in Gaza.
He said the wounded suffered mild injuries resulting from shattered windows, doors, and debris after the Israeli missiles struck areas close to civilian homes.

The Israeli strikes also targeted a storage room, east of a mosque in the Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza city, as the air force fired two missiles into the building, destroying it and causing damage to nearby homes.

Eyewitnesses said medics and rescue teams managed to move the six wounded Palestinians to a number of hospitals, while firefighters battled the blazes resulting from the Israeli attacks.

The Air Force also fired two missiles into a land, the al-Maqousy area, in an-Nasr neighborhood, northern West of Gaza City.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, stated that the army also bombarded one of its centers in al-Matahen area, south of Deir a-Balah city, in central Gaza, causing damage but no injuries.

Two missiles were also fired into a land north of Rafah city, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip; no injuries were reported.
