Israeli warplanes target two sites in Gaza

GAZA, Sunday, August 30, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation’s artillery bombed two sites in the Gaza Strip early today morning, causing financial damages to property but no casualties, according to WAFA correspondent.

He said that the Israeli artillery, stationed near the Israeli perimeter fence northeast of the city of Khan Younis, south of the Strip, fired a few missiles at a site to the east of the city, destroying it and causing damages to nearby facilities but no human injuries.

Israeli artillery also fired two more missiles at a site to the east of the city of Deir al-Balah, in the center of the Gaza Strip, causing damages to property. No human casualties were reported, however.

Today’s Israeli attacks are the latest in a series of aerial and artillery strikes by the Israeli occupation against the coastal enclave for the third week.

The Israeli occupation’s military has claimed that the strikes are in response to the flying of incendiary kites by Palestinian civilians into the Israeli military outposts and settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip. However, Palestinians have been defending the practice as a form of expressing resentment over the tightened Israeli blockade which has stifled all aspects of life in the enclave for 14 years.
