article imageIsraeli F-16 air strikes kill 120, injures 400 in Gaza Strip

Israel has launched a series of F-16 air strikes against key targets in the Gaza Strip. It has killed at least 120 and injured 400 people, according to Hamas officials.
Hamas recently fired rockets from Gaza and Israel warned that it will strike back. It did on Saturday.
Israeli F-16s bombed several key targets inside Gaza Strip, particularly the security compounds run by Hamas. This follows Israel’s end of truce (with Hamas), which expired recently.
According to Israel, they targeted “Hamas terror operatives” as well as training camps and weaponry storage warehouses.
The video of the attacks can be seen in this BBC site. The video contains disturbing images.
Medics in Gaza also reported heavy casualties and said 120 died in Gaza City and 23 died in the southern city of Khan Younis, according to Reuters.
There is also a speculation that Israel might launch a ground offensive soon.
People are already suffering in Gaza Strip because of the blockade; this attack will make it even worse.
