Israeli Airstrikes Injure Nine Gaza

Continued unauthorized presence by the Israeli Air Force’s over the Gaza Strip has been followed by the warplanes inflicting injuries on nine Palestinians.

A Wednesday Press TV report said the fighter planes had violated the Gaza airspace, staging a mock raid over the Palestinian territory.

The fighter jets caused sonic booms as they flew over the tiny coastal silver.

Reporting from the enclave on Thursday, a Press TV correspondent said, "At least three people have been injured, when a civilian car… traveling in…the Gaza Strip was targeted by a missile that was fired from an Israeli warplane."

"This came hours after six civilians were injured overnight by a series of airstrikes that targeted different areas across the Gaza Strip," he added.

"Israeli forces continue to open fire on scrap metal collectors, farmers, fishermen and airplanes do not leave the skies of Gaza, especially reconnaissance planes that are monitoring the activities here in the besieged coastal territory," the correspondent said.

Israeli forces carried out a self-proclaimed withdrawal from Gaza in 2005.

The military, however, continues to carry out regular bloody attacks on the enclave. Tel Aviv also retains its occupation of the Palestinian territories surrounding Gaza and has been keeping the sliver under an all-out land, naval and aerial blockade for more than three years.

The Israeli aircraft frequently overfly Gaza, bombing the tunnels under the strip’s border with Egypt, which serve as the territory’s only way of bringing in food, medicine and other direly-needed requirements.
