Zionist Israeli regime warplanes launch 7 attacks on Gaza

357085_Israel-jetIsraeli warplanes have carried out at least seven air raids on different areas of the besieged Gaza Strip, firing nearly 18 rockets, Press TV reports.

The raids took place “just after midnight,” resulting “in the injury of at least three people,” a Press TV correspondent reported from the coastal enclave.

“Several areas like agricultural land, farmland, factories and few stores were also hit. Also a place near Gaza solar power plant was hit,” our reporter added.

“People here are bracing themselves for something heavy to happen in the next hour or so because of the high volume of rockets that were fired within 15 to 20 minutes,” he said.

Tel Aviv has recently stepped up its attacks on the territory, killing and wounding many Palestinians.

Witnesses said on March 26 that Israeli forces fired at the boats near the city of Rafah, situated 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of Gaza City, injuring four fishermen.

Gaza has been blockaded since June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard 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.
