Israeli jetfighters attack Hamas base in Gaza

Tehran, Jan 23, IRNA – The warplanes of the Zionist regime of Israel have conducted attack on positions of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Hamas organization in Beit Lahia.

According to Palestinian media ' Maan News Agency', Zionist fighters shot four rackets toward Ashkelon base, north of Beit Lahia.

Meanwhile, a helicopter also targeted the area.

In the wake of the recent tensions in eastern borders of Gaza, the base have earlier been evacuated.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Israeli regime declared start of air attacks on northern Gaza in the pretext of retaliating targeting of a Zionist force and then killing of a Resistance force affiliated with Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and injuring two others in an artillery attack on eastern Bureij.

Israel claimed that Hamas is responsible for any accident which happens inside and outside Gaza.

This is while, The Palestinian Society Prisoner's Club in a statement announced earlier that the Israeli forces attack on Ofer Prison in the occupied West Bank had injured at least 100 Palestinian detainees.

The great 'March of Return' rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe--a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 254 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 26,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
