Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Tuesday February 11, 2014.
The Israeli air force bombards the Gaza strip causing damage, and troops invade West Bank communities and kidnap civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Israeli air force fired several missiles, on Tuesday, into two areas in the besieged Gaza Strip, causing property damage but no casualties, local sources reported.
The Israeli army claimed the first strike targeted what it called “a rocket launcher” hidden in an area in central Gaza, while the second targeted a training center used by an armed resistance group in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
Furthermore, the air force fired missiles into an open area in the northern part of the Gaza Strip; no damage or injuries were reported.
Staying in Gaza, Israel has agreed to allow a shipment of goods to enter the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said Tuesday.
Hussein al-Sheikh, the head of the Palestinian Authority’s civil affairs department, announced that Israel has agreed to allow 52 trucks carrying food, cargo, gas, and other fuel to enter Gaza.
Additionally, Israel approved a shipment of supplies to develop a new chain of eye clinics in Gaza, which will be associated with Jerusalem’s St. John Hospital Group, al-Sheikh said.
The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by the State of Israel since 2007. The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.
Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday, Palestinian communities in the Nablus and Jenin districts, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, kidnapping seven Palestinians.
Local sources in Nablus have reported that several armored Israeli military jeeps invaded various neighborhoods in the city, violently broke into and searched several homes. The soldiers then kidnapped three Palestinian and took them to an unknown destination.
Furthermore, soldiers invaded the Jaba’ village, north of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and kidnapped four Palestinians, local sources reported.
