Israeli airstrike targets motorcycle in Rafah

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli warplane fired at least missile targeting a Palestinian motorcycle in eastern Rafah City in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that an Israeli drone targeted a motorcycle near the Sufa area of Rafah City.

No injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army reported that they targeted a "cell" responsible for launching incendiary balloons and kites towards Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites as a form of protest against Israel's nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees right of return to their homes and lands which are now known as Israel.

In September, Israeli farmers from Israeli communities surrounding the besieged Gaza Strip announced that they will be filing a lawsuit against the Hamas movement leaders before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague.
