Israel paid no respect to Muslims holy festival of Eid-ul-Fitr and continued bombing Gaza Strip woke on Thursday as a result of which 69 people, including 17 children and eight women, have been killed.

Palestinian authorities said that Israeli forces bomb police headquarters and security buildings in Gaza in a series of air raids on various locations early Thursday.

Meanwhile, Safa Press agency reported that another air strike hit western Gaza early on Thursday. It was not immediately clear which target in Gaza was hit by the Israeli army.

The news agency reported that sirens were being activated in Karam Abu Salem, just east of the border with Gaza. The area is being occupied by Israeli settlers.

HAMAS: Hazem Qassem, a spokesperson for Hamas, has vowed that his group will continue its struggle to defend the Palestinians, while hinting of a more diversified response against Israel.

Safa Press agency quoted Qassem as saying that Hamas is “expanding its response throughout the Zionist entity.”

Since the Israeli police crackdown against Palestinian worshippers at Al Aqsa Mosque in occupied al-Quds, Hamas has launched more than a thousand rockets into several areas within Israel.

While most of the rockets have been intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defence system, some have landed in residential areas killing at least six Israelis.

BODIES RECOVERED: The bodies of an elderly man and his wife, whose residence in Gaza’s Sheikh Zayed neighbourhood was hit by an Israeli air strike, have been recovered.

The remains of the couple from the al-Madhoun family were pulled out from under the rubble of their home, according to the health ministry in Gaza.

On the other hand, an Israeli social media website showed a building in the city Petah Tikva on fire after it was hit by a rocket fired allegedly by Hamas.

Petah Tikva is located just east of Tel Aviv.

It was not immediately clear if there were casualties in the incident.
