Israeli air attacks kill five Palestinians in Gaza

, , , , ,

SHAFAQNAAt least five Palestinians were killed by Israeli air attacks on the Gaza Strip in the worst violence in this region since the 2014 war.

The latest escalation came less than 24 hours after at least seven Palestinians were killed in a covert Israeli operation in the besieged enclave.

Hamas, the group administering the strip, said one of Monday’s air attacks destroyed the building of its television station. There was no immediate word of casualties.

Electronic Intifada’s Ali Abunimah said Israel was targeting the people of Gaza with “terror, bombing and killing”.

Since 2008, Israel has launched three major assaults on Gaza that have heavily damaged the Strip’s infrastructure and sources of livelihood.

Violence has flared frequently on the frontier since Palestinians in the Gaza Strip began weekly protests along the fence with Israel on March 30, demanding their right to return to the homes their families were expelled from 70 years ago.

More than 200 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more wounded by Israeli troops deployed along the other side of the fence since the Great March of Return demonstrations began on March 30, Aljazeera reported.
