The Israeli Air Force carried out several airstrikes targeting different areas in the Gaza Strip; damage was reported, no injuries.

Local sources reported that the army bombarded a chicken farm, and a farmland, located north of Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The shelling led to excessive damage but no injuries among the residents.

Also, the air force fired at least one missile into an area located between Khan Younis and Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip; the target is reportedly a training camp for resistance fighters.

Soldiers also fired a missile into an area in Dir Al-Balah, in central Gaza; damage was reported, no injuries.

At least one missile was fired into the An-Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza but the missile did not explode after impact.

Israeli warplanes were heavily seen and heard flying over several parts of the Gaza Strip an issue that led to panic among the residents who feared further Israeli military escalation.

Earlier on Saturday, a Palestinian man succumbed to wounds sustained on Friday when the Israeli army fired two missiles a motorcycle in Khan Younis wounding three.

On Friday at dawn, an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian fighter were killed during armed clashes near the Kissufim Israeli military base in Central Gaza.

The latest escalation led to further confrontation between the resistance in Gaza and the Israeli army station across the border.
