Israeli aggression on Gaza continues for the fourth day
Israeli occupation forces are conducting fresh air raids on the Gaza Strip in continuation of their aggression.
The Israeli occupation forces launched for the fourth consecutive day a series of air raids all over the Gaza Strip.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that the Israeli air force targeted agricultural land, east of Gaza City. The air raid was accompanied by a series of airstrikes on farm land in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.
Our correspondent in Gaza also reported that Israeli occupation forces attacked the Al-Tannur neighborhood east of Rafah with a UAV strike.
A target in the Al-Salam neighborhood, in the south of Rafah, was also struck by a UAV.
The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, currently ongoing for nearly four days straight, has so far claimed the lives of 30 people, including six children and three women, and wounded 93 people, including 32 children and 17 women, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported.
The Palestinian Resistance responded to the crimes of the Israeli occupation by launching barrages of rockets toward the occupied Palestinian territories, and it continues to do so, the spokesperson for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement's military wing, Abu Hamza, said Thursday.
"By assassinating our senior officials and freedom fighters will only bolster our will to fight against the enemy," Abu Hamza underlined during a televised speech.
"The resistance exceeded all of the Zionists' expectations by the nature of its response," Abu Hamza stressed.

Resistance capable of harming enemy
The Palestinian Resistance factions' joint operations room said it would not back down, and the assassinations will only make it stronger as its revenge continues.
"We say to the cowardly enemy that by heading toward a policy of bombing people's homes, it is committing a miscalculation," the resistance factions said in a statement.
The joint room of the Palestinian resistance factions also made it clear that the resistance was capable of inflicting severe damage upon the enemy.
"Israel" assassinating Palestinian freedom fighters
