Israel bombs the Gaza Strip once again

Ramallah, Jan 27 (Prensa Latina) The Israeli Air Force launched a new attack against the Gaza Strip, where more than two million people live, one day after the murder of 10 Palestinians in the West Bank.

The jets launched at least 15 missiles at the al-Maghazi refugee camp, located in the center of the enclave, and two other sites in the territory were also bombed, the WAFA news agency reported.

Tel Aviv said the attacks were aimed at targets of the Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS), which has ruled the strip since 2007, in response to two rockets launched from that area against Israel last night.

The rockets were launched in retaliation for the deaths of 10 Palestinians in the West Bank by Israeli fire; nine of them were killed in the refugee camp near the city of Jenin.

Earlier this year, the Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights denounced that more than 2,140 Palestinians died during Israeli air strikes against the Gaza Strip from 2000 to 2022.

The NGO stated that the Israeli missiles and bombs killed 378 minors and 86 women in the Strip during the period.

According to datas from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the cost of Israel blockade of Gaza and the economic restrictions imposed, from 2007 to 2018, amounted to $16.7 billion, equivalent to six times the Gross Domestic Product of the Strip.
