Israeli Jets launch at least 30 airstrikes in the Gaza strip

Gaza is currently under attack. Palestinians on social media have reported multiple bombings on the Gaza strip today, October 5, 2016.

The last known strike was in Shijaia town, east of Gaza city. Some Gazans were able to capture photos of the strikes from a distance, they are presented below.

At least 30 airstrikes were carried out by Israel’s brand new F-16 fighter jets which were recently supplied to them compliments of U.S. arms manufacturers.

An eyewitness from al-Zaitoun neighborhood stated that Palestinian families whose houses were located at borders were evacuated.

The timing of these attacks is peculiar as they were perpetrated at the same time that the Zaytouna Olivia flotilla, or “Women’s Boat for Gaza” was on route to Gaza with aid in an attempt to break the seige of Gaza. The boat was recently intercepted by the Israeli Navy and is being led to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

Injuries and casualties have not yet been reported during these attacks.
