Militants Launch Rockets Towards Southern Israel
On Thursday, militants in Gaza launched rockets towards southern Israel, while Israeli aircraft responded with strikes in the Gaza Strip.
Air defenses intercepted five of the rockets, with one landing in an open field.
Israeli Aircraft Target Sites in Gaza
Israeli aircraft targeted several sites in northern and central Gaza, including a weapons manufacturing site and a military compound.
The compound was reported to be associated with the Hamas militant group.
Raid in West Bank
In the West Bank, Israeli military said the raid was to arrest three individuals suspected in previous shooting attacks.
Ten people were killed in the raid, including a 16-year-old, and scores of others were wounded.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the country has a policy to “respond to terror forcefully and to strengthen our presence in our land.”
Increased Security and Retaliation
In response, Israeli police increased security in sensitive areas on Thursday, while Hamas stated that their patience was “running out.” Islamic Jihad declared that they would retaliate, and a strike was called across the West Bank, with schools, universities and shops all closing in protest.
Schools and universities in Gaza and most shops in east Jerusalem were also closed.
Israeli security officials have reportedly expressed concern that a more stringent approach could lead to an increase in violence as Ramadan approaches.
This year has seen the highest number of fatalities in the West Bank and east Jerusalem since 2004, with 60 Palestinians and 30 Israelis killed in attacks.
