Gaza City, Palestinian Territory:

The Israeli military said on Friday that it carried out airstrikes on Gaza, witnessed by Palestinians in the central Gaza city.

“The IDF (Israeli Army) is currently conducting an attack in the Gaza Strip. A special situation has been announced on Israel’s home front,” a statement said.

Palestinians in Gaza City told AFP they witnessed airstrikes on an apartment in the central Rimal neighbourhood.

The enclave’s health ministry and the Islamic Jihad group said a child and a terrorist were among the four killed in Friday’s Israeli airstrike in Gaza.

“The number of martyrs has risen to four, including a five-year-old girl who was targeted by Israeli occupation,” the health ministry said.

The Islamic Jihad group said one of its commanders was killed “in a Zionist killing in Gaza City”.

Security sources in the Palestinian enclave said there were airstrikes in several parts of the region.

The strikes came four days after Israel closed two of its border crossings with Gaza and restricted the movement of Israeli citizens living near the border, citing security concerns.

The move follows the arrests in the occupied West Bank of two senior members of the Islamic Jihad group, which has a strong presence in Gaza.
