The Palestinian Information Centre -  24 March 2011


Two Palestinian civilians have been wounded Thursday morning during Israeli aerial attacks north of the Gaza Strip.

For its part, Salahuddin Brigades, the armed wing of the popular resistance committees, said one of its fighters miraculously survived an air raid.

Local sources told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that Israeli warplanes launched two raids this morning on a group of civilians east of Beit Lahia district, north of Gaza, which led to the injury of one citizen.

Another civilian was transferred to hospital after a similar raid on an area near Al-Khazndar station in Beit Lahia.

Salahuddin Brigades claimed responsibility for firing three homemade rockets on Karmiya settlement, south of Ashkelon city and one mortar shell on the Israeli military post Abu Safiya.

The firing of rockets and mortar shells at Israeli settlements and military posts near Gaza comes in retaliation to Israel’s military escalation against the Strip.
