At least two Palestinian police officers were martyred and many others wounded late Tuesday in two blasts in Gaza City when Israeli warplanes launched new round of airstrikes against the blockaded enclave.

Iran Press/Middle East: The Attacks came as Israel presses ahead with its acts of aggression against the impoverished Palestinian coastal sliver.

"Two policemen were killed and another was injured as a result of an explosion near a checkpoint in the Dahdouh area of western Gaza City," said ministry spokesman Iyad al-Buzm.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the injured officer was in critical condition, without providing further details.
