At least two Palestinians have been injured in Israeli airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip, local medical sources say.


Israeli F-16 warplanes carried out the attacks on northern Gaza late on Friday night, Xinhua reported.

The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says Israel launched over 58 air and ground assaults on the Gaza Strip in June, which killed over a dozen Palestinians and injured many others.

The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, saying the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes. However, disproportionate force is always used, in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, which is a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
