4-year-old boy injured in Israeli airstrike on northern Gaza

July 7, 2014 4:40 P.M. (Updated: July 8, 2014 2:38 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes struck the northern Gaza Strip on Monday, injuring a young boy, medics said.

Airstrikes hit agricultural areas in northern Jabaliya, with medical sources saying a four-year-old boy sustained moderate injuries.

Another two airstrikes hit agricultural land in eastern Jabaliya, causing damages to property.

Two airstrikes also hit nearby Beit Lahiya, with no injuries reported.

Additionally, an airstrike hit the al-Shujayyia neighborhood of Gaza City, with no injuries reported.

Nine Palestinians, six of them members of Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades, were killed in Israeli strikes overnight.

An Israeli army statement said that "aircraft targeted three concealed rockets launchers in the northern Gaza Strip."

Correction: An earlier version of this story said that the boy was injured in Beit Lahiya. In fact, he was injured in Jabaliya.
