Fresh Israeli strikes have left at least 16 people injured — two in a critical condition, witnesses and security sources say.

Israel’s F-16 warplanes and Apache helicopters carried out multiple airstrikes on late Wednesday early on Thursday across the Gaza Strip, a Press TV correspondent reported.

An Israeli tank opened fire on a group of Palestinians in the east of Gaza City. The Islamic Jihad movement said that three of its members were injured by Israeli tanks firing from positions inside Gaza late Wednesday.

Separately, two other Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gunfire in Beit Lahiya.

And in yet another attack, Israeli drones targeted the east of Gaza City, injuring at least two people.

Israeli F-16s as well as Apache fighter helicopters also hovered over the Gaza City, where witnesses reported two intensive explosions.

Meanwhile, Hamas said it has evacuated all its security posts, police stations and government buildings as it expects more Israeli attacks.
