The Israeli Air Force fired, on Monday at dawn, several missiles into a Palestinian agricultural land, east of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Media sources in Gaza said the Israeli war jets carried out more than ten air strikes into lands in the an-Nahda neighborhood, in Rafah and its surrounding area, causing serious damage.
The Israeli army said it fired missiles into underground tunnels, run by armed resistance groups in the Gaza Strip.
Israeli sources said that a shell, which was fired from the coastal region, crashed in Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, and claimed that one rocket struck a house in the area causing no damage or casualties.
On Sunday, four Israeli soldiers were injured, including two who suffered serious wounds, when an explosive device detained near their vehicle close to the border fence in southern Gaza.
The Israeli army then struck eighteen targets in the Gaza Strip, including six sites believed to be run by the al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, one of them reportedly a tunnel extending from the Zeitoun neighborhood in Gaza towards Israeli areas across the fence.
Also Sunday, two Palestinians, identified as Salem Mohammed Soliman Sabbah, 17, and ‘Abdullah Ayman Salim Irmeilat, 15, were killed by Israeli airstrikes in the city of Rafah.
