Israeli jetfighter targets eastern Gaza

Tehran, An Israeli warplane targeted one the position belonging to Resistance forces in eastern Gaza on Tuesday night. According to Palestinian media 'Maan', Zionists' reconnaissance aircraft fired two missiles toward Resistance forces in Malakeh District, eastern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army claimed that its jetfighter targeted a group of Palestinian youths who tended to launch incendiary balloons.

This is while Zionist armed forces shot Palestinian protestors in northern and eastern Gaza injuring at least 13 of them.

Based on the report, the Palestinian youth were preparing themselves for taking part in the 25th round of maritime protest in Beit Lahia, northwestern Gaza.

The protestors demanded breaking the 12year blockade at Gaza border.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since then.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have martyred at least 260 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 27,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
