Occupation planes bombard Gaza


"Israel" launched an airstrike on the Palestinian Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the first such attack since a truce ended an eight-day cross-border war in November, Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the territory, said.

"Occupation planes bombarded an open area in northern Gaza, there were no wounded," a statement from the Hamas Interior Ministry said, according to the Voice of Russia.

An Israeli occupation forces  spokeswoman confirmed there had been a strike in Gaza, but gave no further details.
