Israeli Warplanes Pound East Gaza

Israeli Warplanes Pound East Gaza

IOF warplanes have attacked the eastern Gaza Strip in yet another use of excessive force against the Palestinian residents of the besieged territory.

IOF warplanes have attacked the eastern Gaza Strip in yet another use of excessive force against the Palestinian residents of the besieged territory.

In the incident, which happened in the early hours of Sunday, Israeli F-16 jets flew over Gaza City and fired a missile at the area of Jabal al-Rayes, east of the city.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage to property.

The Zionist military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, claiming this violence is being conducted for defensive purposes. However, 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 standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

Naval siege of the Gaza Strip remains in place, exports are banned, and imports of raw materials and construction materials are restricted.
