Israeli warplanes blast targets in Gaza

GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli warplanes raided two positions for the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, in western and eastern Gaza city at dawn Saturday, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources said that the first raid targeted a Qassam position in Zaitun suburb southeast of Gaza, adding that at least one missile was fired by the Israeli F-16 warplanes.

They said that the second raid targeted another position to the northwest of Gaza in the Shati refugee camp.

The sources noted that big damage was inflicted on the two evacuated positions and in nearby civilian homes.

Spokesman for the medical services Adham Abu Salmiya told the PIC that no casualties were suffered as a result of the air strikes.

This is the first time Israeli warplanes raid targets in Gaza after the undeclared calm with resistance factions almost a week ago, which followed three days of Israeli military escalation that claimed the lives of 19 Palestinians and the injury of around 70 others.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all?
