As the Israeli occupation army continues to strike civilian areas in the Gaza Strip, killing women and children, the Palestinian resistance has targeted an Israeli military vessel off the coast of the enclave, Quds Press reported yesterday.

In a statement, Abu Obaida, spokesman of the Izz ad-Din Al-Qassam Brigades said that the Israeli warship was attacked with missiles.

He added that the attack came after the Israeli military launched a series of air raids on the Gaza Strip early yesterday.

A video posted by the resistance movement on social media shows the rockets directly hitting the warship, while Israeli media reported that the warship was targeted but that rockets fell in its vicinity.
