9 Palestinian killed in a series of Israeli air strikes on Gaza


Gaza-raids-israelGAZA : Nine Palestinian resistance fighters were killed and others were wounded in a series of Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip on Sunday night and at dawn Monday.

The PIC reporter said that two fighters affiliated with the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, were killed while a third was wounded in an Israeli aerial raid on Breij refugee camp in central Gaza Strip on Sunday night.

The armed wing announced that six other fighters, including two brothers, were killed in a similar Israeli air strike on one of its positions in Rafah, south of the Strip, at dawn Monday.

The PIC reporter said that a Qassam fighter succumbed to serious wounds suffered during an earlier raid on northern Rafah.

Other Israeli raids targeted areas in Gaza City, east of Khan Younis, south of the Strip, and northern Beit Lahia, north of the Strip, with no casualties reported.

Health ministry spokesman Dr. Ashraf al-Qudra said on his Facebook page that two Palestinians were wounded one of them seriously in an Israeli raid on Rafah city.

He said that five other citizens were injured when an Israeli missile exploded near their home in Beit Hanun town, north of the Strip.

Seven civilians, including three children and three girls, were wounded in a raid east of Zaitun suburb to the east of Gaza City.

Two groups of resistance fighters survived missile attacks on northern Gaza Strip areas.

Israeli warplanes and reconnaissance planes took part in the intensive air raids since Sunday night. Warplanes are still hovering over the besieged enclave, which harbingers more raids.
