Israeli warplanes also fired three missiles at a site near Beit Lahia town, north of Gaza, destroying it. They also targeted several areas in Rafah and Khan Younis districts in the south of the Gaza Strip causing heavy damage.
Israel claimed that the strikes came in response to rockets fired by Islamic Jihad operatives into southern Israel. No injury or damage was reported.
This appalling war crime occurred Sunday morning in #Gaza when an Israeli bulldozer and tank entered Gazan territory in a blatant territorial violation, then cruelly and brutally crushed and dragged a young boy to death, at the end leaving his lifeless body dangling like a trophy pic.twitter.com/zGPLTvzkPa

According to a statement published by the Islamic Jihad, the rocket strikes were in response to the murder of Islamic Jihad member Mohammed al-Naem, 27, who was shot dead along the fence separating besieged Gaza Strip from Israel, earlier in the day.

A video, that sparked outrage on social media, showed an Israeli bulldozer preventing other Palestinians from retrieving Naem’s body before extracting and taking away the corpse.
