Israel strikes on Gaza leave child martyred

Israel strikes on Gaza leave child martyred
A 10-year-old Palestinian boy has been martyred and his two siblings injured in a new Israeli aggression against the beleaguered Gaza Strip.

According to Press TV, Gaza Health Ministry Spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said Yasin Abu Hussa martyred in an air raid on the town of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza Strip in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The Palestinian boy's six-year-old sister, Isra', who suffered serious head injuries, was taken to hospital for treatment, while his brother Ayoub, 13, sustained moderate injuries to his face, Arabic-language Safa news agency reported.

Israeli officials say they conducted the air raids after several rockets allegedly fired from Gaza late on Friday landed in an open terrain in the south of the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Zionist regime’s military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip. The disproportionate force is always used in violation of international law, and civilians are often martyred or injured.

A deadly 50-day offensive against the Palestinian coastal sliver ended in late August 2014 with a truce that took effect after indirect negotiations in the Egyptian capital Cairo. Nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were martyred in the Israeli onslaught. Over 11,100 others - including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people - were also injured.
