On Friday evening, the Israeli occupation carried out airstrikes and artillery shelling of sites in the eastern regions of Gaza, injuring one Palestinian, and causing damage.

One Palestinian citizen was injured when an Israeli reconnaissance drone fired two missiles at a resistance observatory, east of Gaza City, in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

The wounded citizen was transported to Al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City, for medical treatment. The nature and severity of the injury was not known at the time of writing this report.

The airstrike caused damage to the observation site, used by the Palestinian resistance movement in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Israeli tanks fired artillery shells at a site east of the “Juhr al-Dik” area, southeast of Gaza City, and later another drone fired one missile at the same site.

An army statement, broadcast on Israeli Army Radio said, “After three fires broke out as a result of the launch of incendiary balloons, the army attacked a total of three Hamas sites, two using drones and one using a tank.”

Earlier Friday, Israeli forces shot 31 Palestinians, including a child, along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, and caused dozens more to sustain inhalation injuries as a result of tear gas exposure.
