Israeli occupation forces carry out multiple attacks on Gaza

M.Y | DOP -

On Tuesday night, Israeli occupation forces launched airstrikes into several areas in Beit Hanoun, attacked fishing boats off Gaza shores, and abducted two Palestinians on their lands near the fence in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the soldiers attacked several Palestinian farmers east of Jabalia town, in the northern parts of the coastal region, and abducted two farmers before moving them to an unknown destination.

The sources added that the Israeli Airforce fired at least three missiles into sites in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, causing considerable damage.

Also, Israeli navy ships fired dozens of live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats near the shores of Rafah, Khan Younis, and Northern parts of the Gaza Strip, forcing them to leave.

The Israeli occupation said it fired missiles into Gaza allegedly after “a bullet was fired from the coastal hitting a building on Netiv HaAsara,” adding that its “fighter jets fired missiles at a post for Hamas.”

On Tuesday morning, Israeli navy ships attacked many Palestinian fishing boats in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Last Saturday, Israeli soldiers fired many automatic live rounds and gas bombs at Palestinian farmers and shepherds east of Khan Younis in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

On Saturday morning, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

On Saturday dawn, the Israeli army fired missiles targeting two areas in Gaza city and the central part of the coastal region.

The attacks are part of constant Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.

In March of 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
