Is­rael strikes Gaza again, no in­for­ma­tion about ca­su­al­ties

The Daily News Egypt - - News -

The Is­raeli army launched on Satur­day an airstrike on sev­eral sites in the eastern be­sieged Gaza Strip, af­ter claims that the Pales­tinian move­ments have fired rock­ets tar­get­ing the Is­raeli towns lo­cated near the Strip. The Is­raeli forces also stormed Ra­mal­lah city in the West Bank.

The Is­raeli raid tar­geted train­ing sites of the Al-Qas­sam Bri­gades, the armed wing of Ha­mas move­ment, with no in­for­ma­tion about ca­su­al­ties thus far.

“Ear­lier tonight, a rocket was launched from Gaza to­wards the Is­raeli ter­ri­tory. In re­sponse, Is­raeli fighter jets tar­geted two of Ha­mas’s un­der­ground struc­tures in the Gaza Strip. We will con­tinue op­er­at­ing to de­fend Is­raeli civil­ians,” the Is­raeli army tweeted on Satur­day night.

On Fri­day, a Pales­tinian woman was killed by the Is­raeli forces dur­ing a mass protest on the bor­ders be­tween Gaza and Is­rael. About 13,000 Gazan demon­stra­tors par­tic­i­pated in the protest.

Mass demon­stra­tions started in the Strip since the end of March 2018, com­mem­o­rat­ing the 42nd an­niver­sary of the Land Day, dubbed the Great Re­turn March.

In Novem­ber 2018, the last op­er­a­tion con­ducted by the Pales­tinian move­ments, Ha­mas and Al-Ji­had Al-Is­lami, in­cluded the launch of more than 400 rock­ets to­wards Is­rael’s north­ern towns.The Is­raeli Iron Dome sys­tem in­ter­cepted about 100 Pales­tinian rock­ets.
