Palestinian medical sources reported that five Palestinians were injured, one seriously, in an airstrike on Friday at night targeting a site that they claimed was a resistance training center in central Gaza.The Israeli army fired at least one missile at the alleged training grounds, located near al-Nusseirat refugee camp, causing four injuries. The injured were all taken to a local hospital.

Israeli army spokesman Avichai Adraee stated that the army bombarded a Hamas center in Gaza in retaliation for a rocket that was fired into southern Israel. He held the Hamas party fully responsible for any escalation in the region.

The five men who were injured have not been identified – one of them was injured seriously, while three sustained moderate injuries. The fifth sustained a mild injury, but no further details were available at the time of this report as to the extent and type of injuries.

The injured men were all taken to Al Aqsa Hospital in Dir al-Balah, in central Gaza.
