New Round of ’Israeli’ Strikes against Besieged Gaza

New Round of ’Israeli’ Strikes against Besieged Gaza
As the “Israeli” entity continued its aggression against the besieged Gaza strip, Tel Aviv launched several airstrikes in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening.
Witnesses revealed that at least five airstrikes targeted an open area near the long-closed Rafah airport, causing material damage. No casualties were initially reported.
Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, issued a statement following the airstrikes, condemning the military incursion inside the Gaza Strip.
“The enemy should not invoke any reason whatsoever for its actions and leave the Gaza Strip immediately,” the statement read, adding that the airstrikes marked a breach of the ceasefire after the devastating “Israeli” offensive on the besieged Palestinian territory in 2014.
For its part, the “Israeli” army released a statement on Wednesday evening, stating that the airstrikes were in retaliation for Resistance mortar rounds fired from the Gaza Strip since Tuesday.
Earlier during the day, “Israeli” tanks stationed along the Gaza border shelled two other areas.
Following the shelling, Gaza’s Ministry of Education evacuated the nearby Subhi Abu Karsh and Beit Dajan schools.
Earlier on Wednesday, senior Hamas leader Musheer al-Masri warned that the “Israeli” attacks on Wednesday constituted a “dangerous development.”
“The “Israeli” occupation should avoid testing the Palestinian resistance’ tolerance,” al-Masri said, adding that “the enemy should realize that the toll would be in proportion to the “Israeli” crimes.”
Similarly, Islamic Jihad’s Spokesman, Daud Shihab, stated that “”Israel” has not ceased its hostilities against the Palestinian people since the ceasefire was agreed on in 2014.”
“There are continued onslaughts and infiltrations in both Gaza and the West Bank and in other locations in Palestine,” Shihab added.
