2 Palestinian navy officers injured in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian navy officers were injured in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza overnight, an official said Wednesday.

Ashraf al-Qidra, the Gaza spokesman of the Palestinian Ministry of Health, said that two navy police officers were hospitalized after sustaining injuries from an Israeli airstrike on a police station west of Gaza City.

The two are in stable condition, al-Qidra said.

Iyad al-Buzum, spokesman of the Ministry of the Interior in Gaza, said "Palestinian police and other security services continued to fully operate despite the Israeli aggression and the daily strikes."

Airstrikes also hit a military base belonging to Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades, an agricultural area in northern Gaza, a poultry farm east of Khan Younis and a military base on the city's outskirts, and open areas in Deir al-Balah, without causing injuries.

Israeli warplanes also struck a military base in northwest Gaza, causing damages.

Israel's army said it targeted "5 concealed rocket launchers in northern Gaza, one terror activity site in central Gaza, and a weapon manufacturing facility in southern Gaza" in response to rocket fire.

Earlier, five rockets were fired from Gaza, Israel's military said, with two intercepted, two falling in Gaza and one landing in an open area.

Al-Qidra said a young Palestinian girl died and three family members suffered injuries late Tuesday in an explosion in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.

Four people including two children arrived at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, with the two children said to be in critical condition.

Residents in the area said they believed the explosion was caused by a homemade rocket.
