Israeli helicopters, jets launch fresh attacks on Gaza Strip
Tehran (KNA) - Helicopters and jets operated by the Israeli regime have launched fresh attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip, less than a day after warplanes targeted facilities allegedly belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.
Israeli sources said airstrikes late on Saturday targeted Hamas positions in Gaza while tanks were stationed on the border separating the enclave from the occupied Palestinian territories.
The attacks reportedly came after Hamas fired rockets on Israeli positions in Sderot and in Sha’ar Hanegev region to retaliate Israeli attacks that had taken place in the early hours of Saturday.
Regime sources said two of the three rockets fired by Hamas had been intercepted by Israel’s modern Iron Dome system.
Media reports said the rocket attacks had caused panic among Israeli settlers and military forces. There was no statement from Hamas on the rocket attacks and Israeli bombardment.
