Palestinians fleeing from Israeli attacks
Israeli occupying forces attacked positions in the Gaza Strip with tank fire on Sunday night, according to Ma’an news agency.
Despite the Israeli army stating they had attacked a Hamas post in the south of the Strip, locals confirmed that the tank shells landed in the residential area of Deir Al-Balah. No injuries were reported.
Israel has launched numerous attacks on the besieged coastal enclave this year, injuring at least seven Palestinians and damaging the already limited electricity infrastructure.
The latest attack on the Gaza Strip has been seen as an attempt by occupation forces to divert attention from the ongoing unrest in Jerusalem which has been caused by Israel’s increased security measures and Judaisation efforts at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Palestinians have rejected Israel’s new policies which they say change the status quo at the Muslim holy site and are a step towards Israel imposing complete control on the mosque.
