Israeli warplanes have attacked the eastern Gaza Strip
in yet another use of excessive force against the Palestinian residents of the besieged territory.
In the incident, which happened in the early hours of Sunday,
Israeli F-16 jets flew over Gaza City and fired a missile
at the area of Jabal al-Rayes, east of the city,
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage to property.
The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip,
saying the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes.
disproportionate force is always used,
in violation of international law,
and civilians are often killed or injured.
