GAZA will not be broken, ruling party Hamas said today, after Israel launched another wave of air strikes on the Palestinian enclave, the second in a matter of days.
The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) claimed that it had struck “Hamas terror targets including a training facility, an anti-aircraft missile launcher post, a concrete production plant and terror tunnel infrastructure.”
It alleged the attack was responding to a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, although did not state who launched it.
Israel holds Hamas, which is the ruling party in Gaza, responsible for all rockets launched from its territory.
Tel Aviv often claims to have struck military targets, however most of its missiles are reported to have struck civilian infrastructure and agricultural land.
No casualties were reported as a result of either Thursday’s or Saturday’s air strikes, which took place in the first week of the holy month of Ramadan.
“Gaza still fights and doesn’t break,” a Hamas spokesman said after the latest attack.
Gaza is home to two million people and has been subjected to a siege, with Israel having imposed a blockade of its land and sea borders in 2007 when Hamas was first elected.
