Israeli airstrikes hit eastern Gaza

shiitenews_Israeli_airstrikes_hit_eastern_GazaIsraeli forces have launched airstrikes in the eastern part of Gaza city, with no immediate reports of the exact number of casualties.

According to initial reports, Israeli fighter jets targeted a garage used by mechanics in the Shujaiyyah neighborhood in the besieged Gaza Strip late on Tuesday night.

Earlier in the day, Israeli artillery shelling in east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp in Gaza killed two Palestinians and injured another.

In April, a series of Israeli airstrikes killed at least 19 Palestinians in the occupied territories.

On May 15, the Israeli military gunned down over two dozen people among those marking Israel’s 1948 occupation of Palestine, known as the Nakba Day or “the day of the catastrophe.”

The Israeli army frequently bombs the tunnel network in Gaza, claiming that Palestinian resistance fighters use the tunnels to store and smuggle in weapons. Palestinians, however, dismiss such allegations, insisting that they were forced to resort to the underground tunnels to bring in basic living supplies to the impoverished Gazans because the territory has been sealed off to the outside world by a punishing Israeli blockade for over three years.

Some 1.5 million people are being denied their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and their rights to appropriate living conditions, work, health and education.

In 1948, Israeli forces displaced some 700,000 Palestinians, forcing them to flee to different countries.
