Israeli Warplanes Target Central Gaza Strip


Israeli warplanes raided an open area west of Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip overnight Monday, a Ma’an correspondent said.

The Israeli army said in a statement that “in response to rocket fire from Gaza at Israel last night, IAF aircraft targeted a weapons manufacturing site in the central Gaza Strip overnight.”


A hit was confirmed, the statement added.

Israeli radio said that projectiles had been fired at the Shaar HaNegev regional council in southern Israel.

The shelling in Gaza caused a fire to break out which fire fighters managed to extinguish. No injuries have been reported.

Earlier on Monday evening Israeli jets dropped flare bombs in the area, a Ma’an correspondent said.


Launched in 2005, Ma'an News Agency (MNA) publishes news around the clock in Arabic and English, and is among the most browsed websites in the Palestinian territories, with over 3 million visits per month.
