TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Zionist regime of Israel launched fresh airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing two more people in the besieged enclave.

Israeli Air Force aircraft targeted four facilities belonging to Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli military said in a statement, according to Reuters.

Two people were killed in the attack. A Hamas source later confirmed two men killed in the strikes which urged Palestinians to keep up confrontation with Israeli forces.

On Friday, two Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops on the Gaza border and scores more wounded there and in the occupied West Bank during protests against US President Donald Trump’s recognition of al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Israeli capital.  

On Wednesday, Trump announced his decision to recognize Quds as Israel’s capital and relocate the US embassy in the occupied lands from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Quds remains at the core of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, with Palestinians hoping that the eastern part of the city would eventually serve as the capital of a future independent Palestinian state.
