'Israel' targets house of PIJ commander 2 years after martyrdom
Al Mayadeen correspondent reports that the house of martyr Bahaa Abu Al-Ata was massively damaged after being shelled by Israeli jets.
The Israeli occupation air force launched air raids on Saturday targeting the house of martyred Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Bahaa Abu Al-Atta in the Shujaiya neighborhood in the Gaza Strip, an Al Mayadeen correspondent reported.
The occupation's warplanes targeted a five-story building where martyr Abu Al-Ata's home is located, causing severe damage to the residential building.

The correspondent said that vast parts of the Al-Shujaiya neighborhood suffered from power outages after the aggression.
An explosion was also heard east of the city of Rafah in Gaza, where, according to Palestinian media, the Israeli occupation shelled agricultural land east of the Ibn Taymiyyah Mosque.
Al Mayadeen correspondent also said that "an Israeli UAV conducted a drone strike on a house in Yarmouk Street, in central Gaza," adding that the occupation destroyed seven houses across Gaza over the past few hours.
Earlier today, Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement (PIJ), mourned on Friday Iyad Al-Hassani (Abu Anas), a member of its Military Council and Commander of the Brigades Operations Unit, who was martyred in a cowardly Israeli assassination in Al-Nasr neighborhood, in the west of Gaza City.
The Brigades later declared that the Palestinian Resistance delivered a 'concentrated' rocket strike on occupied Al-Quds, "Tel Aviv", and illegal Israeli settlements in response to Israeli occupation forces' assassination of PIJ military commanders and their ongoing aggression on Gaza.
The Israeli aggression on Gaza has entered its fifth day today, and according to the Ministry of Health, it has resulted so far in 33 martyrs, including six Resistance leaders, 5 children, and four women, while 111 Palestinians were injured.
