4 Gazans injured in Israeli drone strikes
Israeli drones have fired missiles at targets in northern and eastern areas of the besieged Gaza Strip, injuring four Palestinians.

The attacks occurred on Saturday, a few hours after two Palestinian men were killed in two separate drone attacks carried out by the Israeli military.

On the same day, a six-year-old Palestinian boy was killed and two others were injured in an attack by an Israeli warplane near the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip.

However, Israeli military officials denied responsibility for the airstrike that killed the six-year-old child.

Witnesses said Israel carried out at least six airstrikes that injured at least 30 people on Saturday.

But Gaza health official Ashraf Al Kedra said at least four Gazans were killed and over 20 people were injured in the Israeli attacks.

The military wing of Hamas, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, promised to respond to Israel’s latest acts of aggression after Saturday’s attacks.

“If the last rounds were not enough to deliver the message… we are ready to crush the enemy and to curb its arrogance and to respond to aggression in a strong way,” Hamas said in a statement issued on Saturday afternoon.
