The Israeli air force launched three airstrikes against a police station in the center of the blockaded coastal enclave within one hour.

According to the report, Israel also targeted a farmland east of Khan Yunis.

At least three people are said to have been injured during the strikes.

Gaza has been blockaded since June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

Over 160 Palestinians, including women and children, were killed and about 1,200 others were injured in Israel’s eight-day offensive on the coastal enclave, which ended on November 21, 2012.
