GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories — Israeli warplanes launched overnight air strikes on the Gaza Strip, Israeli occupation forces said on Sunday.اضافة اعلان


Security sources in Gaza reported two strikes in the south of the enclave, one against a military training site in Khan Younis and the other in an area close to Rafah.


The strikes caused no injuries, according to Palestinian medical sources.         


“The Zionist enemy is extending its aggression against our people by brutally bombarding the Gaza Strip, following its crime yesterday of executing the martyr Ammar Mufleh in Huwara,” Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said.


A surge in Israeli violence in the occupied West Bank has sparked international criticism of Israel for its use of lethal force against Palestinian civilians.


Criticism has focused on the killing of Ammar Hadi Mufleh, 22, in disputed circumstances in the West Bank town of Huwara, just south of Nablus, on Friday.


At least 145 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli occupation forces this year, the heaviest toll since 2015.


In August, at least 49 Palestinians were killed when Israel launched a war on the besieged Gaza Strip that lasted just three days.
