Three Israeli airstrikes on Gaza injure motorcyclist, child

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man and a child were injured on Sunday morning after Israeli air forces launched three strikes across the Gaza Strip.

An Israeli air strike in the northern Gaza Strip hit a motorcyclist on Saftawi Street near Jabalia, injuring the driver and a number of passerby.

Two other air strikes in central and southern Gaza Strip left no reported injuries.

Spokesman for the Gaza Strip ministry of health Ahraf al-Qidra told reporters that the motorcyclist was a 22-year-old man who was evacuated to Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City after he sustained serious injuries from the Israeli attack.

Al-Qidra added that a 12-year-old boy was taken to Kamal Udwan Hospital in Jabalia, and that doctors said he suffered moderate wounds. more
