Palestinian groups fire rockets into Israel in response to raid

Palestinian resistance groups have fired a number of rockets into Israel in response to an Israeli airstrike that killed one person and injured eleven others in the Gaza Strip.

The Islamic Jihad resistance group and Hamas said on Monday that the rockets landed in the southern part of the occupied lands.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the rocket attack, saying the raid caused minor damage but no casualties.

Israeli tanks also shelled the city of Khan Yunis in eastern Gaza after the rocket attack.

The Monday Israeli attack wounded five people and prompted the evacuation of five schools across Gaza.

One of the Israeli attacks hit a residential area, injuring four children. Witnesses say a mosque minaret and a water tower were also damaged.

The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip. In the attacks, 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 standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and the right to decent living, work, health and education.
