Gaza City: At least 15 people have been killed in airstrikes launched by Zionist groups in the Gaza Strip on Friday. Children were among those killed in the strike, according to the enclave’s health ministry.

A military spokesman for the Zionist organization said it “assumes about 15 people have been killed fighting” in Gaza, referring to Palestinian fighters. Richard Hecht told journalists.

The strike comes four days after the Zionists closed two border crossings with Gaza and restricted the movement of Zionist civilians living near the border, citing security concerns.

The action follows the arrest in the occupied West Bank of two senior members of the Islamic Jihad, which has a strong presence in Gaza.

Hamas, the extremist group that governs Gaza, said the Zionist group had “committed a new crime that must be paid for”.

In a statement, Hamas said, “The resistance of all military branches and factions are united in this struggle and will speak loudly because they cannot accept the situation as it is… All fronts open fire on the enemy.” I have to,” he said.

On Friday afternoon, the Zionist organization’s forces banned large gatherings in communities within 80 kilometers (50 miles) of the Gaza border until Saturday evening. The measure follows a four-day road closure and other travel restrictions in border areas.

Palestinians, including patients, and those with work permits have been barred from leaving the Gaza Strip since Tuesday, and the passage of goods has also been closed.

Gaza’s only power plant is in danger of imminent shutdown due to a shortage of fuel supplies by Zionist groups, its administrator warned Thursday.

This week’s closure of border areas follows attacks by security forces in the northern West Bank of Jenin. Forces of the Zionist organization detained Bassem al-Saadi and another senior member of Islamic Jihad. A 17-year-old member of the group was shot dead by entity forces during the raid.
