  • Israeli fighter jets strike in northern Gaza

Israeli fighter planes have carried out bombing raids on several locations in northern Gaza, just days after the Tel Aviv regime martyred over 60 Palestinians there.

The latest attacks took place early on Thursday on multiple targets spread out through the Palestinian town of Beit Lahia.

According to Gaza's Health Ministry, at least one person was injured in the attack.


Following the strikes, the Israeli military claimed that it had targeted positions belong to the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement in response to “heavy machine gun fire.”      

Israeli forces martyred at least 62 Palestinians during protests near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds.

The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, with civilians being the main target of such attacks.
