GAZA, (PIC)– Two more Palestinian resistance fighters from Islamic Jihad Movement were proclaimed dead at an early hour Sunday during another Israeli air raid west of Gaza city.

Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, said two more of its fighters, were killed today when Israeli warplanes bombed a group of fighters near the abandoned airstrip west of Gaza city.

Earlier on Saturday, seven resistance fighters from Al-Quds Brigades were announced dead and many others, including civilians, were wounded during similar aerial attacks on Rafah border area, south of the Gaza Strip.

A spokesman for the Brigades told the Palestinian information center (PIC) yesterday that the armed wing of Islamic Jihad would retaliate strongly to Israel’s crimes and its soldiers would pay dearly for what happened.

In this context, one Israeli settler was reported dead on Saturday evening and 20 others were wounded during rocket counterattacks that were waged in retaliation to a series of Israeli deadly air strikes on Gaza.

The Hebrew radio said yesterday that six settlers were injured, some of them seriously, and 14 others suffered extreme panic when missiles fired from Gaza landed near them.

The radio added that two settlers sustained moderate to serious injuries and two others suffocated from smoke when one grad missile hit a building in Ashkelon city.

Another grad missile landed in a parking lot causing damage to many cars and slight injuries to one settler, a similar rocket attack were also waged on Gan Yavneh settlement leading to the injury of one settler, according to the radio.

The radio revealed that the anti-rocket iron dome, which was established near Gaza borderline with the Israeli occupied lands, was able to intercept one missile only heading to Beersheba.

Meanwhile, the Israeli police raised the state of alert to a higher level in all settlements near Gaza after a number of projectiles and grad missiles, fired from Gaza in retaliation to Israel’s deadly attacks, landed inside Israeli occupied areas.
