The Israeli occupation forces carry out air raids on Gaza Strip, initially on a Resistance position, and the Palestinian Resistance responds.
The Israeli occupation Air Force carried out air raids on the center of Gaza Strip, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported on Thursday dawn, targeting a Palestinian Resistance site in the Strip.
The Palestinian Resistance initially responded by deploying its air defense systems against the Israeli warplanes violating the Gaza airspace, using SAMs to intercept the hostile aircraft, our correspondent reported.

The report came as Israeli media reported that the air raid sirens were sounded in the illegal settlements of the Gaza envelope.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation forces said they bombed Gaza as sirens warning of incoming fire sounded once again in the Gaza envelope.
Far-right Israeli Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir called for an immediate meeting to determine how should "Tel Aviv" respond, Israeli media reported.
Explosions were heard in northern Gaza, and the Palestinian Resistance assured that this was the sound of the Israeli Iron Dome system attempting to intercept the rockets, Palestinian media reported.
At the same time, the Israeli Jerusalem Post newspaper said Israeli settlers in the "Sderot" settlement "heard a loud explosion shortly after the sirens sounded."
Al Mayadeen correspondent reported that the Israeli occupation renewed hostilities in the West of Gaza, noting that sirens were sounded in the settlement of "Kfar Aza" east of the Strip.
Moreover, Al-Mujahideen Brigades said its air defense forces intercepted the hostile Israeli aircraft violating the airspace of the Gaza Strip using SAMs and anti-aircraft missiles.
The Ezzeddine Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing, said the Resistance's air defenses were firing at the Israeli warplanes carrying out raids on the Gaza Strip.
The Resistance intercepted the Israeli aggression and responded by launching rockets toward the Gaza envelope settlements, Al Mayadeen correspondent added.
Hours earlier on Wednesday, Israeli settlers in the Gaza envelope settlements reported hearing at least three explosions, at least one of which was due to the Israeli Iron Dome intercepting a rocket fired from Gaza over the settlement of "Sderot", Israeli media reported.
"A rocket was launched from Gaza toward the city of Sderot, and it was intercepted by the Iron Dome," Israeli media said, citing an IOF spokesperson.
The reports came hours after the Israeli occupation said air raid sirens were sounded in the settlements of "Sderot", "Efim", and "Nir Am".
