As the Israeli crimes continues, six Palestinian were killed in Gaza by Israeli army 1

The Israeli army killed six Palestinian citizens in a series of attacks in the Gaza Strip.

Witnesses in the area said that on Thursday morning an Israeli tank fired a flechette shell near the agricultural college east of Beit Hanoun, killing three people and wounding three others. They added that Israeli forces prevented medical teams from reaching the scene to evacuate the wounded. Their bodies were taken to a local hospital.

In a separate incident, three more Palestinians were killed Wednesday evening when an Israeli aircraft shelled a group of citizens east of Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra said the raid targeted four citizens near an orchard farm around the site of Makboula, east of Bureij refugee camp, in the center of the Gaza Strip, leaving three of them dead.

The victims were identified as Khalil Faraj Aljarba, 27; Khaled Salah Crim, 25; and Zechariah Mamdouh Aljammal, 20.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the attack, claiming that the Israeli army targeted a group of terrorists who were preparing to launch rockets at Israel from the center of the Gaza Strip.

"This cell was involved in previous launches of rockets into communities in southern Israel," she added.

Earlier, the Israeli army said in an initial statement that the men targeted from the air had previously fired rockets across the border and were preparing to do so again. According to the Israeli army, more than 450 rockets have landed in Israeli soil since early 2012.

On the other hand, Palestinian security said that the Israeli forces launched over 140 air and ground assaults on the Gaza Strip in August that killed nine Palestinians and injured many others.

In the same context, Israeli F-16 war planes have launched at least five airstrikes on several targets in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, injuring several Palestinians. The war planes and drones are still filling the skies of Gaza, which means a new Israeli strike is intended.

Meanwhile, several Israeli vehicles and tanks entered the strip early Thursday as they moved deeply in the city of Khan Younis and fired against Palestinian homes. Israeli military confirmed this attack, too.

The Israeli army chief of staff declared that he does not exclude an Israeli invasion of Gaza and expects new offensive war on Gaza Strip.

Opinion:

The Israeli army knows very well that the people killed had nothing to do with firing rockets, but Israel as always claims that they kill members who "intend" to target Israel with rockets.

It's no longer necessary for the Palestinian resistance to go to the Gaza border to launch missiles, as in the past. They now have missiles that can be launched from anywhere, even from the Gaza beach, and will easily reach the Israeli lands. Therefore, Israel is never honest in what it claims.

I noticed that the Palestinian resistance has not responded to the new Israeli aggression, but I expect the answer to be tonight. For sure we will go back to the point of action and reaction.

After all, the people in Gaza are expecting a hot night. On the other hand, residents of the settlements adjacent to Gaza Strip are not expecting a quieter night than Gaza's.
