Israeli Warplanes Carry Out Fresh Air Raids on Gaza
TEHRAN (FNA)- Israeli warplanes carried out fresh airstrikes against the Gaza Strip, bombing locations in the East of the besieged enclave.

The Israeli military says the warplanes and helicopters have stricken the positions of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, in Gaza Strip late on Sunday night, according to presstv.

An Israeli military spokesperson claimed in a statement that the Hamas targets hit by the warplanes include "underground infrastructure".

The spokesperson also claimed that the attacks were in reaction to three rockets allegedly fired from the besieged enclave at Southern parts of the occupied territories. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

There were no immediate reports of casualties caused by the Israeli air raids.

The fresh attacks come as Hamas has called on other Palestinian groups in the occupied West Bank to join hands and start an armed struggle against the Israeli occupation.

Mahmoud al-Zahar, a co-founder of the Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas and a member of the group's leadership in the Gaza Strip, says all Palestinian groups must follow the successful model implemented in the liberation of the Gaza Strip, namely armed struggle, in order to counter Tel Aviv's expansionist policies in the West Bank.

Speaking to the Lebanese TV channel Al Mayadeen on Thursday, al-Zahar said the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) must stop implementing its Oslo Accords with the Israeli regime, and take up arms against the occupiers.

Meanwhile in the occupied West Bank, clashes broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinians protesting against a plan by Tel Aviv to annex parts of the West Bank.

The Palestinians had gathered in Hebron, also known as al-Khalil, to protest against Tel Aviv’s plan to annex parts of the occupied West Bank when Israeli troops used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse them.

The demonstrators, in turn, threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at Israeli vehicles.

Tel Aviv is seeking to annex its settlements built in the West Bank as well as the Jordan Valley in a decision that has drawn widespread criticism from the international community.

The United Nations has called the plan a violation of international law. Several European countries have also opposed the US-backed project.
