Local sources in the Gaza Strip said dozens of Israeli airstrikes have hit the coastal enclave today after a home-made projectile was fired into Israel earlier this morning. A Salafi group claimed responsibility for firing the rocket.

The airstrikes targeted some 25 different sites in the Gaza Strip, most notably, the Navy Force Building to the north of Gaza. In addition, Al-Qadisiah military training site to the east of Gaza was targeted by Israel.

Israel has also shelled various sites and agricultural lands throughout the Gaza Strip. No injuries were reported.

The Islamic Jihad Movement has accused Israel of further escalating violence against the Gaza Strip to divert attention from Al-Zaytouna boat – all women-led boat, which was sailing to Gaza to break the siege. The boat was intercepted by Israeli forces off the Gaza coast. Meanwhile, Hamas has warned Israel it ‘will not tolerate attacks against the Gaza Strip’.

The Gaza Strip has been under siege for 10 years. The new Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has adopted a policy against the Gaza Strip which includes carrying out dozens of airstrikes in response to projectiles fired from Gaza.
