Israeli Artillery Shelling Hits Northern Gaza

Gaza, 23 Muharram 1438/24 October 2016 (MINA) – Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) shelled a Palestinian resistance monitoring site in Beit Hanoun north of Gaza Strip on Monday.

No injuries were reported during the shelling.

The Israeli attack came shortly after Israeli media sources claimed that a Code Red siren was heard in the Sha’ar Hanegev settlement, near Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.

A rocket was fired early Monday morning from Gaza Strip at the Sha’ar Hanegev and prompted Code Red sirens to sound in the area, the sources claimed.

Israel continues to carry out attacks on the Palestinian enclave from time to time in total violation of the ceasefire agreement which ended Israel’s latest large-scale war on the Gaza Strip in early July 2014.

The 51-day military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children.

Over 11,100 others, including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people, were wounded in the aggression. (T/P008/R07)
