Israel latest strikes in Gaza kills 13 Palestinians, including four children
Israel has carried out a series of strikes on Gaza killing at least 13 people, including three members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistant movement, with Palestinian health ministry saying women and four children were among the dead.
Palestine’s Ministry of Health declared on Tuesday that at least 20 others were injured in the pre-dawn strikes in which more than 40 Israeli war planes carried out attacks for nearly two hours starting at 2am local time on Tuesday (23:00 GMT Monday).
Head of the Islamic Jihad’s media office, Daoud Shehab, said that all cities and settlements deep inside the Israeli-occupied territories are within the reach of Palestinian resistance groups’ missiles.
“We promise our martyrs, leaders and our people that the Zionist enemy cannot escape unscathed. We will remain steadfast in our positions, and will continue to tread the path of resilience,” he told al-Quds al-Youm television network.
Shehab noted that the international community will soon find out that the Israeli apartheid regime has failed to achieve any objectives out of the latest act of aggression, as the Palestinian resistance front will not hesitate and will not be complacent about taking retaliatory measures.
Additionally, Mohammed al-Hindi, a member of the political bureau of the Islamic Jihad said that the “Israeli” enemy will pay the price for the treacherous crime it perpetrated against the senior commanders of the al-Quds Brigades.
“The resistance is ongoing and escalating. It will determine the end of this conflict. Martyrdom is our dignity, and the assassination of our commanders demonstrates the path of struggle for us,” he added.
