The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that Israeli F-16 jets fired missiles into several areas in Gaza city, mainly Sheikh Radwan, Al-Hawouz, and other areas, north of the Gaza Strip, in addition to firing missiles into lands, south of the city.

Furthermore, the Israeli air force fired missiles into a vacant land, east of the Ash-Shujaeyya, close to the location where a Palestinian gunman shot and killed an Israeli military engineer, a few days ago.

In addition, an Israeli manned Apache helicopter opened missile fire on an area,north of Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources said that two Palestinians were hospitalized after suffering moderate injuries.

Israeli army spokesperson, Avichay Adraee, said that the attacks took place in response to shells fired, from Gaza, into an area in the Ashkelon shore area, south of the country, causing no damages or injuries.

He stated that Hamas is responsible for the escalation and any further escalation, as “it controls Gaza”, adding that Israel will retaliate harshly.
