Zionist Warplanes Attack Palestinian Resistance Posts in Gaza

Zionist warplanes staged several strikes on several posts linked to Palestinian resistance movements Hamas and Islamic Jihad early on Wednesday.

At least two Hamas sites were hit, in addition to one for allied group Islamic Jihad, a security source in Gaza told AFP. There were no reports of injuries.

Israeli occupation military announced the raids, saying they were in response to rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave. It claimed the multiple air raids in the southern Gaza Strip included a weapons manufacturing facility.

The attacks on the besieged Palestinian territory came shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to “respond vigorously to any attack”.

“If someone in Gaza thinks that he can raise his head after Operation Black Belt, he is sorely mistaken,” Netanyahu said in a statement, referring to two days of exchanges between Israeli forces and Palestinian fighters two weeks ago that was the worst such cross-border conflict in months.

Late on Tuesday, the Israeli military had said it identified two projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip, with missile defenses intercepting one.

The rockets caused sirens to sound around the Israeli town of Sderot, close to the border with Gaza.
