Alwaght- Israeli regime pounded the besieged Gaza Strip for a second straight day, killing at least one Palestinian and injuring several others.
Palestinian media outlets reported that Israeli warplanes pounded areas in Abasan al-Kabira and al-Qarara town, located in the Khan Yunis province in the southern Gaza Strip, before Wednesday noon, as well as targets east of the border town of Rafah.
They added the victims and injured Palestinians have been transferred to a number of hospitals.
These attacks come a day after Israeli forces attacked Gaza City and its environs on Tuesday, killing 15 people, including four children, in what they said was an operation targeting three Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement's commanders.
Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli troops shot dead two young Palestinian men during a military raid in the occupied West Bank city of Qabatiya.
The Israeli military said it conducted a raid in the early hours of Wednesday on Qabatiya, situated six kilometers south of Jenin, alleging that it came after two gunmen opened fire at Israeli troops from a passing vehicle.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the victims as 19-year-old Ahmad Jamal Assaf, and Warani Walid Qatanat, 24, according to Palestine’s official news agency Wafa.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said in a statement that the “heinous crime” committed by the occupying Tel Aviv regime against the Gaza Strip, describing it as a blatant violation of international law and humanitarian principles.
It held Israel “fully responsible for the repercussions of such crimes, acts of aggression and organized terrorism,” emphasizing that they “threaten to undermine security and stability in the region.”
The organization called on the international community “to shoulder its responsibilities, provide international protection to Palestinian people, and hold Israel to account for all its crimes and violations against Palestinians as well as their land and holy sites.”
