At least one Palestinian has been killed and two others injured in an Israeli airstrike on the besieged Gaza Strip, medical sources say.
According to Palestinian sources, the airstrike hit al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza on Friday.
The latest casualty brought to nine the number of Palestinians killed in Gaza by Israeli airstrikes since Monday. A 14-year-old boy was killed in an Israeli drone attack in the Gaza City’s Zaitoun neighborhood on Wednesday.
Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, claiming the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes.
Gaza has been under Israeli siege since 2007, causing a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
Last week, fifty international aid groups and UN agencies urged Tel Aviv to open borders of Gaza, saying the blockade has harmed Gazans.
