Israeli occupation warplanes strike Gaza
The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas resistance movement, announced in a statement, at dawn today, that the resistance’s air defenses intercepted Israeli occupation aircraft targeting the Gaza Strip with surface-to-air missiles and also fired surface-to-surface missiles.
Our correspondent reported that the Israeli air raids targeted resistance sites in the central Gaza Strip, noting that the Palestinian Resistance responded by deploying its air defense systems against the Israeli warplanes violating the Gaza airspace, using SAMs to intercept the hostile aircraft.
The occupation forces launched a series of raids in Gaza hours after Israeli Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir called for an urgent security meeting, following the occupation’s announcement of intercepting a missile fired from Gaza.
