Israeli airstrikes hit UNRWA stockrooms, civilians’ homes

 GAZA, (DRAH.ps)-- Palestinian medics reported deaths and injuries among Palestinian civilians as the Israeli occupation forces targeted UNRWA food stores in Gaza with aerial raids and Palestinian homes with a spate of artillery attacks.

A wave of Israeli raids was launched by the Israeli jets on the UNRWA stores, east of Gaza, setting them ablaze. The fire destroyed food aid items reserved for more than a million and a half Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian civil defense crews could not manage to take out such wild fires set across the stores due to the uncontrollable nature of the Israeli shells.

The sources said similar Israeli attacks rocked UNRWA stockrooms in 2008 and 2009.

The barrage of Israeli raids reduced many of Palestinian homes and farmlands into rubble.

A number of Palestinian civilians were rushed to the hospital as a round of Israeli shells rocked two Palestinian homes east of al-Zaitoun neighborhood.

The Israeli warplanes targeted two poultries, a carpentry, and two more homes across the Strip.

The Israeli airstrikes took away the lives of around 170 Palestinians and destroyed hundreds of civilians’ homes.
