Gaza City – PNN – Israeli air raids on Monday night in Gaza Strip left three wounded, while a predawn incursion into the northern West Bank city of Nablus ended with three Palestinians arrested in the village of Beit Hasan.


In Gaza, local sources said the airstrikes were carried out by F-16 warplanes firing rockets at Palestinians in western Khan Yunes, resulting in two injuries described as “moderate to critical.” A third airstrike occurred in eastern Khan Yunes. All three wounded were taken to al-Nasir Hospital for treatment.

Warplanes also bombed the northern Gaza Strip, near Beit Lahiya, and in the southern city of Rafah, targeting tunnel sites. Strikes were also recorded in Gaza City and Beit Jabaliya in the north. Nobody was injured.

In related news, a homemade Qassam shell fired from Gaza lightly wounded a 14-year-old girl on Tuesday morning in the city of Ashkelon. The attack is thought to be in retatliation for the Israeli airstrikes.

Overnight raids in Nablus targeted the house of Muhammad Salah Abu Zour of the village of Beit Hasan, north of the city. He and his two sons were arrested after troops searched the house and their belongings and left before dawn.
