The Ramallah-based Palestinian government on Wednesday condemned Israeli airstrikes in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
“The non-stop escalation in Gaza is part of [Israel’s] escalation in the West Bank and East Jerusalem,” government spokesman Yousef al-Mahmoud said in a statement.
He held the Israeli government responsible for the safety of Palestinians and their property in the seaside enclave.
“Israel is continuing to violate international law and regulations and is committing crimes against the Palestinian people,” he said.
Israeli warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes across the Gaza Strip on Wednesday in response to rocket fire into southern Israel.
One person was killed in the Israeli attacks, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
