"The Israeli warplanes also attacked a resistance post in the west of Khan Younis refugee camp south of the Gaza Strip," He added.

Today’s overnight raid was one of the dozens of times Israel carried out air attacks in Gaza since the May offensive, which ended in an Egyptian-brokered “ceasefire” on May 21.

Though Israel eased restrictions last month to allow some much-needed aid into the Palestinian enclave, it has maintained a 14-year crippling land, air, and sea blockade.

The UN has dubbed Gaza an “open-air prison” with residents enduring extreme poverty amid conditions that have worsened since the coronavirus pandemic.
