2 Killed, 3 Injured During Israeli Airstrike on Southern Gaza
Two men have been killed in an Israeli airstrike on the southern part of the Gaza Strip, Saturday night. The assault was focused on the smuggling tunnels between the Gaza Strip and Egypt, and injured three others.
The smuggling tunnels are a vital life line for the area due to the military siege of the Strip, imposed by the state of Israel since June 2007. The siege restricts products allowed into Gaza, including healthy food and concrete needed to rebuild Gaza’s damaged infrastructure following Operation Cast Lead.
