‘Israel’ Bombs Gaza Strip: Two Palestinians Martyred, 3 Injured
By Staff, Agencies
Two Palestinians were martyred as the ‘Israeli’ occupation’s military carried out a new round of airstrikes against the besieged Gaza Strip as the apartheid entity presses ahead with its acts of aggression against the impoverished Palestinian coastal sliver.
The spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, said in a statement that two people were killed while three others, including a woman, sustained injuries in the airstrike.
He identified the two deceased Palestinians as 32 year-old police officers Salameh Majid al-Nadim and Ala' Ziad al-Gharabli.
Moreover, the Gaza-based Ministry of Interior and National Security stated that the incident happened at the al-Dahdouh junction in the southern part of Gaza City.
The strike came hours after a Zionist warplane targeted a position of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement in the central part of the Gaza Strip.
The Zionist military claimed that “the aircraft bombed a Hamas observation post east of Juhor ad-Dik [village] in the central Gaza Strip.”
There were no immediate reports of casualties and the extent of damage caused.
The military claimed that the strike was carried out after four rockets were fired toward the ‘Israeli’-occupied territory. Only one of the rockets reached the area, while the other three appear to have exploded within the Gaza Strip, it added.
