Israeli occupation tanks bombard Gaza Strip

Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation tanks bombarded three different sites in Central Area in the middle of blockaded Gaza Strip on Sunday.

Local sources in Gaza said that the three sites are agricultural areas located in the Central Area in the middle of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian medical and security sources reported no injuries among people, but several homes had their windows and doors broken.

The main Palestinian healthcare services said it received tens of telephone calls asking for help for their truamatised children.

Home to nearly two million Palestinians, the Gaza Strip has been reeling under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2007. 

In mid-2014, Israel waged a devastating 51-day military onslaught on the Gaza Strip in which more than 2,300 Palestinians were killed and tens of thousands injured.

According to Israeli figures, 68 Israeli soldiers and five Israeli civilians were killed in the conflict, while another 2,522 Israelis — including 740 soldiers — were injured.
