Israeli Warplanes Attack Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes have reportedly attacked northern parts of the Gaza Strip, which has been under Tel Aviv’s crippling blockade since 2007.

Israeli troops also staged a ground incursion in the coastal enclave with tanks and bulldozers, a Press TV correspondent reported on Thursday.

Last week, Israeli warplanes carried out air strikes against the tunnels under Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian officials said Israeli fighter jets destroyed two tunnels connecting the town of Rafah to neighboring Egypt in an airstrike.

The Israeli military carries out regular bloody attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Tel Aviv also retains its occupation of the Palestinian territories surrounding Gaza and has been keeping the coastal enclave under an all-out land, naval and aerial blockade for more than three years.

The Israeli aircraft frequently overfly Gaza, bombing 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.
