An Israeli drone has carried out an airstrike on the northern Gaza Strip

SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association) –Israeli officials have confirmed the strike on Gaza early Wednesday morning, but released no further details.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces clashed with Palestinian youngsters gathering outside Israel’s Ofer prison located near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday.

The clashes occurred as the Tel Aviv regime released about two dozen Palestinian prisoners it had held for over two decades.

Israel is holding more than 4,700 Palestinians in prisons, many of them without charge or trial.

On Tuesday, Israel released only 26 Palestinian prisoners as the first group of some 104 long-term detainees who are set to be freed in several stages.

Eleven of the 26 prisoners arrived in the occupied West Bank and were welcomed by acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas. Fifteen other prisoners arrived at the besieged Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing.
