Two citizen were killed and others injured in a spate of Israeli artillery and aerial attacks on Saturday morning on the Northern Gaza Strip, provoking rocket response from the Palestinian resistance.

RNA - The health ministry announced the death of 22-year-old Imad Naseer in an Israeli attack on Northern Gaza. Later, another citizen was reported dead in the Israeli attacks on Northern Gaza, Palinfo reported.

In addition to artillery shelling, Israeli warplanes bombed agricultural lands and a street in Beit Hanoun town in Northern Gaza, wounding several citizens.

Medical sources announced that four citizens suffered different injuries in Israeli attacks on Northern Gaza.

Israeli forces at the fence with Gaza also shelled several monitoring outposts East of Khan Younis in the Southern Gaza Strip.

In retaliation, the resistance responded to Israel’s aggression by firing volleys of rockets at Israeli military targets and settlements near the border with Gaza.

The Iron Dome missile system intercepted dozens of projectiles, the Israeli Army claimed, adding that about 90 rockets were fired from the strip. No casualties were reported on the Israeli side, the Israeli Army said, Al-Jazeera reported.

Sirens went off in the Israeli cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon, and the nearby Zikim beach, located two kilometres North of the Gaza Strip, was also closed off.

The Hamas Movement had held the Israeli occupation state fully responsible for the consequences of its aggression against peaceful protesters and resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip, Palinfo reported.

The joint operations room of the Palestinian resistance in Gaza had called on all factions to put their armed units on full alert and get prepared to respond to Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people.

On Friday, four Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in two separate incidents; two of them were shot dead during the weekly Great March of Return rallies East of Gaza, while an air raid targeting a Hamas outpost killed two members of the movement's armed wing.
