Israeli airstrikes injure 7 Palestinians in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians were injured early Friday when Israeli warplanes launched a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, a Ma'an reporter said.

Israeli aircraft attacked a site in northwest Gaza, lightly wounding a child and damaging a number of houses.

Additionally, two missiles targeted an abandoned building near Beisan park in Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip, injuring civilians.

Israeli missiles also struck near a mosque north of Rafah in the southern Gaza strip, injuring four people.

Also in Rafah, Israeli aircraft targeted a military site of al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' armed wing, without causing injuries.

The injured were taken to hospitals, where medics described their wounds as light to moderate.

Israel's army said in a statement that in response to rockets fired from Gaza into Israel, "aircrafts targeted overnight a terror activity site and a weapon manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza strip and a weapon storage facility in the southern Gaza Strip." more
