Israel strikes several sites in northern Gaza Strip

GAZA, Tuesday, July 19, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli warplanes Tuesday evening struck several sites in Beit Hanoun town in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, according to WAFA correspondent.

He said that the fighter jets fired at least three missiles towards several sites in the town, destroying them.

Rising smoke plumes and fires were visible. No injuries were reported though.

Earlier on Saturday, Israeli warplanes attacked several targets in different parts of the besieged strip purportedly in retaliation for firing rockets from Gaza into southern Israel.

Two million Palestinians live the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 12 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of the enclave’s infrastructure.

Gaza’s 2-million population remains under “remote control” occupation and a strict siege, which has destroyed the local economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, plunged them into unprecedented rates of unemployment and poverty, and cut off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the wider world.

Gaza remains occupied territory, having no control over its borders, territorial waters or airspace. Meanwhile, Israel upholds very few of its responsibilities as the occupying power, failing to provide for the basic needs of Palestinian civilians living in the territory.

Every two in three Palestinians in Gaza is a refugee from lands inside what is now Israel. That government forbids them from exercising their right to return as enshrined in international law because they are not Jews.
