Palestinian woman injured in Israeli air strikes on Gaza


GAZA, (PIC)-- A Palestinian woman was hospitalized with moderate injuries after Israeli warplanes fired a number of missiles at a training field for the armed wing of Hamas south of Gaza city on Tuesday night.
Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, a spokesman for the health ministry, said that the woman was injured with flying glass when windows of her home shattered as a result of the powerful explosions.
He said that no injuries were reported in the other Israeli air strikes that targeted another position in northern Gaza and an agricultural field in Gaza valley.
The PIC reporter said that many Israeli warplanes were seen on Tuesday night and that they targeted the Badr training ground for the Qassam Brigades.
A spokesman for the Israeli occupation forces said that the raids targeted positions for manufacturing and storing weapons and were in retaliation to the series of mortar and projectile attacks on Israel over the past few days.
