In response to the heinous crimes the Israeli occupation forces have been committing against Palestinians in Gaza, the Joint Operation Room of the Palestinian Resistance Factions launched projectiles on Wednesday 9 May 2023 at Israeli military posts around Gaza borders.

Palestinian sources reported that Palestinian resistance launched projectiles at Israeli military posts around Gaza borders in response to the ongoing Israeli crimes against Palestinian citizens in the besieged Gaza Strip, which killed 16 Palestinians including 4 children and 6 women and injured more than 20 others.

Since Tuesday، Israeli occupation warplanes have been launching a series of airstrikes targeting several Palestinian homes in the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that Israeli military airstrikes killed 16 Palestinians including 4 children and 6 women and injured at least 20 others.

The ministry noted that medical crews are still evacuating casualties from the areas bombed by the Israeli warplanes.

At least 3 little children were identified among the victims namely Mayar, Ali Tariq Ezz El-Din, and Hajar Al-Bahtini.

According to the ministry, Israeli warplanes killed 4 women and girls namely Dania Adass, Mervat Khaswan, Laila Al-Bahtini, and Wafaa Al-Ghannam.

During its airstrikes, the Israeli warplanes assassinated three leaders in the Islamic Palestinian resistance movement, Jihad, namely Tariq Ezz El-Din, Khalil Al-Bahtini, and Jihad Abdul Al-Ghannam, in addition to the citizen Jamal Khaswan and his son Yusuf.

Targeting Gaza was the most accessible key for Netanyahu’s far-right government to escape from internal political crises, including weekly demonstrations against Netanyahu’s governing coalition and its racist measures.

On Saturday, Israeli outlets reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted at the possibility of resuming Israel’s policy of launching assassination attempts in Gaza.

Various factions of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip were on a high state of alert in anticipation of Israel’s implementation of its threats to assassinate several military commanders in the besieged coastal enclave.

The threats came days after the death of the Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan following an open-ended hunger strike that lasted for 86 days in protest against his illegal administrative detention.

The Israeli has a long history of targeted assassinations dating back to the 1950s. Israeli occupation is estimated to have carried out more than 2,700 assassination operations since 1948.
