Gaza City, July 21 (RHC)-- At least four Palestinians have lost their lives and nearly 120 others sustained critical injuries when Israeli military aircraft and battle tanks hit targets throughout the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime presses ahead with its acts of aggression against the besieged coastal sliver.
Two Palestinians were killed on Friday evening after Israeli artillery units fired two shells reportedly at an observation post belonging to Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas resistance movement, east of the city of Khan Yunis, located about 25 kilometers south of Gaza City, Arabic-language Ma'an news agency reported.
A third Palestinian was killed after Israeli jets carried out airstrikes east of the border town of Rafah. Separately, two Palestinians were wounded when Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian houses east of Abasan city. And a 14-year-old Palestinian boy was also shot and is now in critical condition.
Israeli artillery units fired shells at observation posts near al-Awda refugee camp in the eastern part of Gaza Strip as well as Bureij refugee camp in the central sector of the sliver. Meanwhile, Israeli media outlets assert that an Israeli soldier sustained serious wounds after being targeted by a Palestinian sniper in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
