The air raid was carried out on Monday when the Israeli fighter jets targeted the village of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip.
The Israeli military frequently bombards the Gaza Strip, claiming the strikes are being conducted for “defensive” purposes. However, disproportionate force is always used, in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured.
Gaza has also been suffering a crippling Israeli blockade since 2007, because of which the populated territory has faced a decline in the standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
The Tel Aviv regime 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.
