Israeli warplanes have carried out a number of airstrikes on an area in the north of the besieged Gaza Strip.  

The early Wednesday attack on the coastal enclave followed reports of an alleged earlier rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. There have been no reports of damages or casualties for the alleged rocket attack from Gaza.

The Palestinian resistance movements of Hamas and Islamic Jihad are yet to comment on the attacks.

On May 27, the Israeli air force carried out similar attacks on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip, on Rafah in the south, and on Khan Younis.

The Gaza Strip has been blockaded by Israel since June 2007, which has resulted in a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

Islamic State militants have decimated two unique tombs in the historic central Syrian city of Palmyra, a UNESCO landmark. One of the destroyed mausoleums, deemed “sacrilegious” by the jihadists, is believed to have been over five centuries old.

The head of the Antiquities and Museums Department in Damascus, Maamoun Abdulkarim, told AP that one of the destroyed shrines belonged to Mohammad Bin Ali, a descendant of Prophet Muhammad’s cousin Imam Ali. The second tomb, about 500 years old, was of a Sufi religious figure known as Nizar Abu Bahaaeddine.
