GAZA, (PIC)– Three Palestinians, among them a child, were injured Saturday as Israeli warplanes carried out several strikes on the Gaza Strip.

The warplanes fired at least one missile around a petrol station at the edge of Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza Strip injuring one man, Palestinian sources said.

He was transported to a local hospital, medical sources said, describing his injuries as minor.

Two others in the Al-Shaja’iyya district of Gaza were injured after being fired at by a reconnaissance plane hovering over the area.

Witnesses said reconnaissance planes struck a civilian vehicle near Muadh ben Jabal school in the Al-Shaja’iyya neighborhood in eastern Gaza at noon Saturday.

They added that at least one Palestinian was injured and lost his foot in the strike. In addition, a child was left with minor injuries in the same strike.

Since Thursday, fifteen Palestinians have died and some forty have been injured in a string of Israeli strikes.

Among the casualties was the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees Kamal al-Neireb and four members of the same organization during a strike in Rafah in southern Gaza Strip.

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?
