Five Israeli Airstrikes Hit Gaza, Hamas Official Abducted

‘Israeli’ forces have carried out five airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, eyewitnesses said.

‘Israeli’ forces have carried out five airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, eyewitnesses said.

The Zionist air force claimed that its warplanes targeted “an arms factory” in the center of the Palestinian territory and also three tunnels allegedly used for smuggling contraband.

The Zionist killing machine regularly targets the Gaza Strip, killing and injuring Palestinians. Most of the victims are women and children.

The Palestinians of the Gaza Strip are living in what is called the “world's largest open-air prison” as the Zionist entity retains full control of the airspace, territorial waters, and border crossings of the territory.

Moreover, Israeli occupation forces have abducted another member of the Islamic resistance movement of Hamas in the occupied West Bank Tuesday, one day after abducting two other officials in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The Israeli forces kidnapped Abdul Jaber Foqaqa from his house in the city of Ramallah early in the morning, Hamas officials said.

Foqaqa is the fifth parliamentarian that the Zionist terrorism has abducted since Thursday.

On Monday, IOF stormed Red Cross offices in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and arrested former Hamas minister for East al-Quds affairs Khaled Abu Arafeh and lawmaker Mohammed Totah.

In a bid to avoid being arrested and deported from their hometown, the two Hamas officials had been taking refuge inside the Red Cross compound since July 1, 2010 after Israel revoked their East al-Quds ID cards.

Hamas says 24 of its 45 parliament members from the West Bank are currently in Israeli detention.
