A warplane belonging to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) struck an observation post of the Palestinian resistance group Hamas in central Gaza early Sunday, according to an Anadolu Agency (AA) report.
The warplane targeted the post of the Izzuddin al-Qassam Brigades, an armed wing of Hamas.
No statement concerning casualties has been released by Palestine's Health Ministry or other officials in Gaza.
