Israeli Strikes Kill Six Palestinians

At least six Palestinians have been killed in two separate new Israeli attacks on the impoverished Gaza Strip, medical sources have announced.

An Israeli airstrike hit an area near the city of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza on Friday morning, killing two Palestinians, a Press TV correspondent reported.

In a separate incident, at least four more Palestinians were also killed in an Israeli tank shelling in Rafah. Dozens of others have also been injured.

The deaths bring the number of Palestinians killed in Israeli attacks to 11 since Thursday.

On Thursday, Israeli forces attacked the Gaza Strip, killing at least five people and injuring dozens of others.

The Israeli army has confirmed that its planes and ground forces have targeted the Gaza Strip.

Israel has been regularly bombarding Gaza ever since its 22-day war on the impoverished enclave in December 2008 and January 2009, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians — many of them women and children.

The assaults come as Tel Aviv has imposed an all-out siege on the coastal enclave since June 2007.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boasted on Thursday that the Tel Aviv regime would not stop short of taking any military action against the Gaza Strip.
