Israel has bombed the Gaza Strip after Palestinian fighters launched several rockets from the besieged coastal enclave amid tensions over an Israeli raid that killed at least 11 Palestinians in the Occupied West Bank City of Nablus.
There were no reports of casualties on either side.
Columns of smoke rose from the targeted sites, while the shelling damaged several houses.
In an interview with Radio Islam International, a Palestinian-based journalist based in Gaza, Hanin Harara, said the Palestinians face violations and abuses, apartheid, arrests and been killed in cold blood for years.
The unacceptable and inhumanity acts need action from Muslim and international communities, as well as the Arab government, to call for freedom and rights.
Over 60 Israeli military vehicles stormed Nablus – the deadliest Israeli raid in nearly 20 years. After an undercover force was spotted in the historic Old City, eyewitnesses told Middle East Eye.
The raid, which lasted for four hours, focused on a building in the City that reportedly housed Palestinian resistance fighters.
At least 61 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis this year, at a rate of more than one fatality per day.
