Israeli warplanes launch air strikes on Gaza Strip
GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli warplanes launched a series of air strikes on Gaza Strip on Monday evening wounding a three-year-old child and blasting a number of abandoned training areas for armed wings of Palestinian factions.
Security sources told the PIC that Israeli warplanes entered the air space of the besieged enclave shortly after sundown and blasted a training site for the Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, in Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza.
They said that the warplanes then targeted two training sites for the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, in Nuseirat refugee camp also in central Gaza.
They said that the 3-year-old child Mohammed Bahjet Dalal was injured in the raid on Nuseirat. They added that the child was hit with shrapnel all over his body and he was taken to hospital where his condition was described as moderate.
Eyewitnesses said that the warplanes blasted a third position for the Qassam Brigades in Beit Lahia to the north of Gaza, while another resistance position was targeted south of the Strip.
