The Israeli occupation forces (IOF), intensive artillery bombardment of the northern Gaza Strip persisted on Monday morning as more than 15 artillery and tank shells landed in different parts of the Strip without any casualties reported, Palestinian local sources said.
The sources added, "Explosion echoes were heard all over the northern Gaza Strip districts due to the incessant shelling. The bombardment came few hours after the Israeli assassination of two prominent Islamic Jihad fighters with air-to-surface missiles fired by Israeli choppers late Sunday night.
In the West Bank, Palestinian citizen Osama Abed, 18, was hit with IOF bullets Monday, as Israeli troops stormed the village of Kufr Dan in the Jenin district amidst intensive random machinegun fire.
The intruding troops increased their presence in the village as tractors bulldozed entrances to the village that is reeling under tight military siege.
In the city of Bethlehem, local sources affirmed that troops mounting five IOF military jeeps burst into the Palestinian refugee camp of Azza in the city before launching house-to-house combing operations. They arrested Sami Abdul Hameed Al-Azza, 45, alleging he was a Fatah member.
