Israeli warplanes have pounded several targets in the town of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza Strip, with no reports on possible casualties, Palestinian security forces say.

The Israeli military also confirmed the attack and claimed the airstrike on Wednesday was carried out in response to Palestinian rockets fired into Israel.

On Monday, Palestinian resistance groups fired a number of rockets into the southern part of the occupied lands in response to an Israeli airstrike that killed one person and injured eleven others in Gaza.

Elsewhere, a number of Israeli tanks and bulldozers entered an area east of the town of Rafah in continuation of Israel’s intensified attacks on the Gaza Strip in recent days.

Israeli tanks also shelled the city of Khan Yunis in eastern Gaza after the rocket attack.

The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip. In the attacks, disproportionate force is always used, in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, which is a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and the right to decent living, work, health and education.
