At least seven Palestinian people have been wounded in number of Israeli airstrikes across the besieged occupied Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical sources said.

In the east of Gaza City, an Israeli airstrike directly targeted a group of citizens and cause a number of injuries.

The ministry of health in Gaza reported five were admitted to Al Shifa Hospital in the west of the city, noting one suffered moderate and another critical injures. The two others suffered light injuries.

Just a couple of minutes ago, two other Palestinian citizens were admitted to Abu Yousef al Najjar Hospital in the city of Rafah south of the Gaza Strip.

No information about their conditions has been reported.

The Israeli occupation fighters and tanks have carried out tens of strikes against Palestinian farmers and what they call military bases of the Islamic Jihad.

In a statement, the Israeli occupation army said that these attacks came in response to over 20 rockets launched from Gaza towards Israeli settlements.

Palestinian fighters launched a number of short-range rockets at Israeli targets near Gaza in response to the Israeli murder of a Palestinian citizen in the early morning and tearing up his body by an armoured bulldozer.
