Airstrikes hit Gaza, casualties reported

Source: Press TV

Israeli forces have launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, with initial reports indicating there have been casualties.

In the attacks, which occurred late on Saturday night, Israeli fighter jets targeted several sites across Gaza City.

The exact number of casualties is still not clear, a Press TV correspondent in Gaza reported.

However, witnesses say one of the missiles hit a target in the city's Zeitoun district, causing significant damage to a number of houses.

Officials in the Hamas-administered region said they have evacuated all security posts and police stations as more attacks are expected.

Over the past few months, Israel has escalated its ground and air attacks on the blockaded coastal enclave, killing civilians and damaging property.

On February 27, one Palestinian was killed and two others injured when Israeli fighter jets pounded an area east of Gaza City.

A day earlier, missiles from Israeli warplanes hit two sites in the Gaza Strip, injuring at least four people, including a toddler.
