Israel Air Strike: Israel carried out a series of airstrikes on Gaza on Friday, killing at least 10 people, including a senior Hamas commander, and injuring several others. Palestinian officials gave this information. Israel said it attacked Gaza on Friday amid heightened tensions in the occupied West Bank following the arrest of a senior Palestinian insurgent earlier this week.
Israel has also declared a ‘special situation’ in the country where all schools within 80 km of the border have been closed and other activities of people have been stopped. Israel closed roads around Gaza earlier this week and sent additional troops to the border. Israel did this in anticipation of an attack following the arrest of a senior Hamas member in the occupied West Bank on Monday (August 1).
Conflict continues for last 15 years
There have been four wars and several minor skirmishes in 15 years between Israel and Palestine’s Hamas. The most fierce battle in recent times took place in May 2021 and its fears increased earlier this year as well.
,we’re starting a fight,
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barholm said, “Israeli enemies who launched provocation against Gaza have committed a new crime, for which they will have to pay.” Hamas leader Zail al-Nakhla told Iran (Iran) to Al Maideen TV. “We are starting a fight and the Palestinian resistance must stand united against this aggression,” he said through the network.
,Will not hesitate to protect its citizens,
Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz, visiting settlements near Gaza on Friday, said officials were taking “actions that will remove the threat from the region.” We will work with inner resilience and outward strength to restore regular life in the south of the U.S.”
two rockets fired from gaza
After the Israeli attacks, two rockets were fired from Gaza into central and southern Israel, which were shot down. Israel’s ‘Cannes TV’ gave this news. According to the news, the rocket was fired after Israel launched air strikes in Gaza on Friday.
Earlier, some Israelis protested near the Gaza Strip on Friday, demanding the return of the bodies of a Hamas-occupied prisoner and two Israeli soldiers. The protesters were led by Haider Goldin’s family. Goldin and Oron Shawl were killed in the 2014 Gaza war.
