Palestinians transfer the wounded into a hospital following an Israeli airstrike on the city of Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, on October 29, 2011.
Israeli warplanes have pounded a neighborhood in the northern Gaza Strip, following airstrikes in the coastal sliver’s southern city of Rafah, Press TV reports.

The Israeli fighter jets targeted Zeitoun district twice in the east of Gaza City in the early hours of Sunday.

Witnesses said no one was killed or injured in the airstrikes.

The attacks came hours after nine members of Palestine’s Islamic Jihad Movement were killed in three separate attacks on the city of Rafah on Saturday. Six others were also injured in the strikes.

The Palestinian resistance movement fired two long-range Grad rockets from the Gaza Strip at two Israeli cities in retaliation, killing at least one person.

The Islamic Jihad movement pledged a strong response to what it called the Israeli aggression.

The Sunday attacks are the latest in a long-held string of Israel’s stepped-up military action against the besieged coastal strip, which has been under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2007.

Scores of Gazans have been killed and many more injured in a new spate of Israeli airstrikes on the Palestinian territory over the past few months.
