In four separate bombings by Israeli military jets, at least four people, including a child, from the same family were wounded on Monday.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), the Health Minister of the Palestinian government in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qudra, said that one of the air raids targeted the Nusayrat Refugee Camp and members of a family were taken to a local hospital with no serious wounds.
Al-Qudra said that the second air attack was staged in the city of Refah and a child was wounded by pieces of a missile.
"Other attacks targeted the region where Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades were located. The civilians in the region were not hurt," al-Qudra noted.
The Palestinian Police Department told the AA that Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades had already left the area in order to protect themselves from possible Israeli air raids.
The Israeli army confirmed reports of an air attack against Gaza and said that Israeli jets held four separate bombings on Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stressed that their air attacks on Gaza would continue.
