Israel carries out new airstrikes on besieged Gaza Strip

Gaza City, January 17 (RHC)-- Israeli warplanes have carried out several airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, targeting a number of areas in the north and the northwest of the coastal enclave. 

Palestinian media reported that one of the airstrikes targeted a position belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.  The attack caused an explosion and material damage to the nearby buildings.  Another attack targeted areas in Jabalia and Beit Lahia in Gaza’s north.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military claimed that the attacks were in response to a rocket launch by Palestinians.  It also announced that it had intercepted two of the alleged four incoming projectiles via Iron Dome missile system.

Last month, Israeli warplanes, choppers, and navy boats conducted a series of attacks on the Gaza Strip, targeting several positions in the north, west and south of the besieged enclave.  The attacks were reportedly aimed at the positions of the Hamas, including its "military complexes."

There were no immediate reports of casualties from Gazan authorities as the sites were empty.
