At least four people have been wounded after the Israeli military bombed a refugee camp in the blockaded Gaza Strip, Palestinian media say.

The attack took place against the Nuseirat refugee camp on Friday, the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency reported. The victims were rushed to the hospital in ambulances.

The refugee camp houses nearly 66,000 Palestinians.

Israeli paper Jerusalem Post quoted the Israeli military as saying that its warplanes had launched an aerial attack against a base belonging to the Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

The Israeli military also said the attack was carried out in response to an alleged rocket attack from Gaza earlier in the day.

Israel has launched four wars on Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip since 2008.

The Tel Aviv regime started its latest aggression against the Gaza Strip in early July 2014. The war, which lasted for 50 days, claimed the lives of at least 2,140 Palestinians, including many children and women, and injured some 11,000 others.

Last month, the United Nations Human Rights Council also adopted a resolution calling for those responsible for war crimes during Israel’s devastating military aggression against Gaza to be brought to trial.

Palestinian authorities have already submitted files on Israeli war crimes in the West Bank and Gaza to the International Criminal Court.

The documents describe to prosecutors for the first time in detail Israel’s breaches of international law, including serious war crimes.

The Israeli regime has also imposed a blockade on Gaza since 2007, in a move that has led to a serious decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
