Israeli warplanes launched on Monday airstrikes at several locations across the Gaza Strip, causing damage but no injuries, WAFA correspondent in Gaza said.

Israeli fighters bombed a site in al-Sudaniya area, northwest to Gaza, causing damages to civilian homes in the area.

Israeli warplanes also fired missiles at a site al-Waha area, northwest to Gaza, completely destroying it and causing severe damages to nearby homes.

Fighter jets further targeted with five missiles a site to the west of the town of Beit Lahia, north to Gaza, completely destroying the site and causing damage to homes.

No casualties were reported in any of the airstrikes.

In a statement, an IDF spokesperson said Israeli planes targeted a training camp in the northern Gaza Strip, destroying six separate facilities belonging to the Hamas, including buildings and “terror infrastructure.”

Meanwhile, Israeli navy targeted Palestinian fishermen and their fishing boats in al-Sudaniya and al-Waha areas, forcing the fishermen to leave the sear in fear of getting hit.

Israeli warplanes had earlier attacked posts in the Gaza Strip, following alleged rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, according to reports from Gaza. Last week, two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli strike.

Israeli military officials warned Gazans of dire consequences if the rockets, presumably sent by extremist groups in response to last week’s U.S. President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, would continue to fall on Israel.

Since Trump’s announcement last week, tensions have intensified across the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, with clashes, injuries, and arrests every single day.
