An Israeli airstrike has leveled a Hamas police building in Gaza City in the north of the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime violent attacks on the Palestinian coastal enclave continue. The Abbas police headquarters, the second biggest police facility in Gaza City, was razed to the ground in the attack which occurred in the early hours of Monday after 2:00 a.m. (0000 GMT), AFP reported. The shockwaves from the powerful explosion shattered glass in neighboring houses and reportedly injured several people. It also jolted buildings through the Rimal neighborhood of the city.
Israeli airstrikes, shelling, and artillery fire have left nearly 80 Palestinians dead and over 700 others injured since November 14. Some of the injured are in critical condition.Israeli aircraft bombed Hamas government buildings in the Palestinian territory on Saturday, after Israel's cabinet authorized the mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing for a possible ground invasion. The Israeli military frequently carries out airstrikes and other attacks on the Gaza Strip, saying the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes. However, in violation of international law, disproportionate force is always used and civilians are often killed or injured. Gaza has been blockaded by the Israeli regime since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty. MR/AS
