Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza Strip

Published June 24th, 2015 - 05:38 GMT

Israeli warplanes have carried out a number of airstrikes on an area in the north of the besieged Gaza Strip.  

The early Wednesday attack on the coastal enclave followed reports of an alleged earlier rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. There have been no reports of damages or casualties for the alleged rocket attack from Gaza.

The Palestinian resistance movements of Hamas and Islamic Jihad are yet to comment on the attacks.

On May 27, the Israeli air force carried out similar attacks on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip, on Rafah in the south, and on Khan Younis.  

The Gaza Strip has been blockaded by Israel since June 2007, which has resulted in a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

Over 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were killed in a 50-day Israeli attack, which started in early July 2014 and ended in late August. Over 11,100 others, including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people, were also injured.
