Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that several residents were wounded in a series of Israeli air strikes carried out by the Israeli Air Force after midnight targeting several neighborhoods in Gaza city, Jabalia and Rafah.

The Palestine News and Information Agency (WAFA) reported that F-16 fighter-jets shelled an area near the cars market, at the Salah Ed Deen Street, east of Gaza’s Al Zeitoun neighborhood. Two residents were wounded and were moved to a local hospital.

The air force also shelled a blacksmith workshop in Al Zeitoun neighborhood, completely leveling it and causing damage to a number of nearby homes.

Shortly afterwards, the air force shelled another blacksmith shop on Yaffa street, north east of Gaza City; one resident was wounded and several homes and structures were damaged.

Furthermore, the Israeli Air Force shelled a number of areas in the town of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Navy opened automatic fire and fired several shells at areas across the Gaza shore.

The air force also shelled a chicken farm in Rafah completely damaging it.

On Tuesday night, the air force shelled the “Tunnels Area” in Rafah, wounding one woman and one child. Both were moved to Abu Yousef Al Najjar Hospital.

The shelling came shortly after the Air Force shelled an area close to Al Barazil neighborhood, south of Rafah.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli Navy fired several shells at areas across the coasts of Gaza and Khan Younis.

Palestinian sources in the Gaza Strip reported on Tuesday evening that Israeli war jets shelled an area in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. No injuries were reported.

The sources said that the air force fired at least one missile at the border area, adjacent to Al Barazil neighborhood, south of Rafah.

The shelling did not cause damage or injuries, but several residents, especially children, suffered anxiety attacks due to the night shelling.

Several residents left their home for a while fearing repeated strikes.

The missile fired by the Israeli Air force did not explode, but the sounds of the war jets flying not high above the civilian areas caused panic among the residents.
