Israel attacks Gaza on eve of UN bid

Israeli troops have launched an attack on the northeastern Gaza Strip on the eve of the presentation of the Palestinians’ proposal for membership in the United Nations.

The assault targeted an area in the northeast of Gaza City on Monday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Residential buildings were struck during the offensive, but there are no reports of any casualties so far.

Although Israeli military forces officially withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, they still frequently attack the territory.

The Palestinian Authority will formally submit a request to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for approval of Palestine’s membership in the world body on September 20, during the 66th session of the UN General Assembly.
