Tel Aviv regime sources say Palestinian resistance fighters have fired over 520 rockets from the besieged Gaza Strip into Israel since a ceasefire collapsed on Tuesday.

Israeli authorities also noted that the armed wing of Hamas, the al-Qassam Brigades, has fired over 40 rockets into Israel since Friday midnight.

Media reports say Palestinian rockets targeted Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport on Saturday with unnamed sources adding that the rockets have targeted several Israeli cities and communities including Sha’ar HaNegev and Eshkol, causing property damage.

Israel’s channel 10 has captured the moment when one of the rockets targeted Sha’ar HaNegev in southern Israel.

Latest reports say Palestinian fighters also fired 3 rockets at Israeli tanks east of Rafah.

Following the incidents, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to intensify Tel Aviv’s ongoing brutal offensive against besieged Palestinian enclave in Gaza.

Many Palestinians in Gaza Strip are killed on a daily basis as the Israeli military continues pounding the impoverished region.

Palestinian officials say a 12-year-old boy was killed after Israeli warplanes targeted a house in the central city of Deir al-Balah.

Palestinian medical sources say one man also died of injuries in the city of Khan Yunis. Over 80 people have lost their lives since Israel resumed bombing the coastal strip five days ago.

The overall death toll from the onslaught on Gaza now stands at about 2,100 while over 10,500 have been injured since July 8. A vast majority of casualties are civilians, many of them women and children.
