The ministry condemned the targeting of factories and economic establishments in the Strip, stressing that the Israeli occupation deliberately targets factories to destroy the economic infrastructure in the beleaguered enclave.

The Israeli occupation's destruction of factories and economic facilities caused dozens of workers to lose their jobs, the ministry added.
