Local sources in the Gaza Strip said three Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza last night. The airstrikes targeted three sites in northern Gaza as well as in Gaza City.

The first airstrike hit an empty lot adjacent to Askalan military training site, which is run by the military wing of Hamas, Al-Qassam Brigades.

In the second airstrike two missiles targeted the area surrounding the Field Control post to the West of Bit Lahyia. Fire was reported in the area following the airstrike.

The third airstrike targeted Alyarmouk military training site in Gaza’s Shujayia neighborhood run by Hamas. No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army said in a statement, “The airstrikes came after a mortar shell fired from Gaza landed in Ashkol.”

Two weeks ago, the Israeli Forces launched 50 missiles and shells into Gaza after a home-made projectile was fired into southern Israel.
