GAZA, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have killed 49 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since the start of 2011 and until the ninth of April including seven children.

Dozens of Palestinians also sustained different injuries during Israeli aerial and artillery attacks especially on last Thursday which saw intensive deadly air raids on civilian areas in Gaza, according to Quds Press.

The eighth of April was the deadliest when 11 Palestinians died during brutal air raids on homes.

In this regard, the Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands strongly denounced the renewed Israeli aggression against Gaza.

The Islamic Movement called on the free media outlets and the Arab revolutionists to highlight the name of Gaza in order for Israel to know that Gaza is not alone.

It expressed its confidence that the Palestinian people’s will in Gaza would triumph over the occupation’s injustice.

For its part, the association of Palestinian scholars urged the people of Gaza to stay steadfast and resist the Israeli aggression by all means necessary.

The association also called on the Palestinian resistance to defend its people and teach Israel another lesson in the battlefield.

In a separate incident, Israeli sources said the Palestinian resistance fired during the last three days over 150 projectiles at Israeli targets in Negev region, Ashkelon, Beersheba, settlements of Kiryat Gat, Sderot, and Ofakim and areas south of the 1948 occupied lands without any reported injuries.

Eight of these projectiles were intercepted by the anti-missile system called the iron dome, according to the sources.

The Israeli ministerial committee for armament affairs intends to buy more four anti-missile batteries to strengthen its iron dome system at a cost of more than 200 million dollars funded by the US government, the sources said.
