Palestinians in the Gaza Strip mourn for relatives killed in recent attacks carried out by the Israeli regime, September 6, 2012.

The Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip have fired two rockets into Israel in retaliation for the latest attacks by the Tel Aviv regime on the coastal enclave. The rockets targeted the Sedot Negev area, east of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday. No damage or casualties have been reported. On Thursday, three Gazans were killed when an Israeli tank fired a Flechette shell at a group of Palestinians in the northern town of Beit Hanoun. Three Palestinians were also killed and another wounded in an Israeli airstrike on central Gaza on Wednesday. The Israeli regime conducts airstrikes and ground attacks against the Palestinian territory on an almost regular basis. Over a dozen Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza during the six-day period of June 18-23. Gaza has been blockaded by the Tel Aviv regime since 2007, which is a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
