Israeli air attacks have hit sites in the northern part of the Gaza Strip following a two-day Israeli operation in Jenin that killed at least 12 Palestinians.

Palestinian media sources said at least three air strikes hit locations in Gaza.

The Israeli army has confirmed it carried out air attacks on the Gaza Strip in response to rockets fired from the Palestinian coastal enclave.

“In response to the rockets launched earlier tonight [Wednesday], the IDF [Israel’s army] is currently striking in the Gaza Strip,” the Israeli army said, according to the French news agency AFP.

A Palestinian security source said the air attacks hit a Hamas military site in northern Gaza but caused no injuries.

Israel’s raid on the occupied West Bank city of Jenin has killed at least 12 Palestinians as the military targeted the refugee camp and hospitals in the area, in what is one of the biggest military operations in the West Bank in years.

The Palestinian Authority’s health ministry confirmed two deaths on Tuesday, raising the total number of Palestinians killed to at least 12.

The attack was widely described as one of the worst Israeli attacks on Jenin in two decades.

During its raid, Israeli forces also targeted hospitals, medical staff and ambulance units.
