A few hours later, the Israeli warplanes attack Gaza lands with tons of bombs, Days of Palestine reporter affirmed.

"It's the sixth consecutive day that the Israeli occupation is systematically shelling the Gaza Strip," he added.

Local sources said that Israeli warplane fired eight missiles at an area west of KhanYounis refugee camp in the southern of the Gaza Strip.

This the sixth day of Israeli aerial attacks and artillery shelling on the Gaza Strip, which have caused damage to property and no harm to residents other than causing panic among the population.

Israel has also imposed collective punishment on the besieged Gaza Strip and its two-million population by closing the only commercial crossing with Gaza, banning entry of badly needed fuel and cutting in half the fishing area Gaza fishermen are allowed to sail in to earn a living.

Israel claims the attacks and punishment were in retaliation for flying incendiary balloons from Gaza into bordering Israeli areas causing fire to fields.
