GAZA -- Seven Palestinian citizens were wounded and a number of homes sustained damages during Israeli air strikes on several areas in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) claimed that the raids targeted a weapons factory and were carried out in retaliation to a rocket attack on an Israeli area.

Palestinian eyewitnesses said that the Israeli air raids targeted a mobile home in northern Gaza and Al-Qassas area in Yibna refugee camp in Rafah, while news reports said that Israeli warplanes bombed two metal workshops in Jabaliya and the central area of Gaza.

Other news reports quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the raids destroyed a factory of washing machines in Jabaliya belonging to Al-Najjar family and a workshop in Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

Local sources added that six people from the same family were injured in Jabaliya and a number of houses sustained different degrees of damage as a result of the air strikes.

Other Palestinian sources reported that Israeli warplanes bombed Gaza borders with Egypt which led to the injury of three citizens, adding that the Israeli gunboats also bombarded houses in the same targeted area.

In a separate incident, one Palestinian worker was killed and two others were moderately wounded after the collapse of their tunnel at the Palestinian-Egyptian borders.

Medical sources told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the medical crews recovered the body of Hani Rezq and rescued two other men who fell in the tunnel.

The Israeli blockade on Gaza prompted its people to dig tunnels to smuggle food and fuel to Gaza despite the presence of serious risks to the lives of those working inside them.
