A Palestinian woman and four children were injured in Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip overnight.

Palestinian medicals reported on Thursday that the five civilians were hit by shrapnel.

A three-year-old boy was injured in the attack on the central area and a training center for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) was damaged in the attack on the southern area, sources said.

The Israeli military often targets Palestinians along the border with the Gaza Strip, which remains literally cut off from the outside world by a crippling Israeli blockade.

The siege has turned the densely-populated coastal Palestinian sliver, home to some 1.7 million people, into the largest open-air prison in the world.
