The Palestinian terrorists stationed in Gaza continued this morning with the launching projectiles towards Israelwhich has so far registered more than 507 while his troops have hit 147 targets of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (YIP) Islamist group in the Strip.
The latest figures released by the Israeli Army indicate that of the total number of rockets fired from Gaza, a significant part fell on unpopulated areas and 154 were intercepted for its air defense systems.
Most of the shells were fired at the Israeli communities bordering Gaza, although shots were also fired at cities such as Beersheva and Tel Aviv.
The Army has stopped offering figures on how many rockets hit urban areas, while emergency services have reported that for now no injuries have been reported product of the shots.
A military spokesman further reported that 110 of the 507 shots were misses that impacted within the Gaza Strip itself, something that, according to what they indicated to EFE official Israeli sources, caused the death of four Palestinians in the enclave.
Since the start of the current upsurge in violence on Tuesday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has counted 25 deaths in Gaza and more than 70 wounded.
The last Israeli attack this morning was aimed at ali ghalia top Islamic Jihad commander, who was killed along with two of his relatives.
Although the Israeli army has focused its attacks on YIP targets, a spokesman for the terrorist movement Hamas – which rules in Gaza and has a much larger arsenal – stated that the group participates in the armed response.
Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations They continue to try to negotiate a trucesomething that so far has not borne fruit.
On the other hand, the United States National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivancommunicated yesterday with his Israeli counterpart, zachi hanegbito whom he conveyed the support of Washington “to the Israel’s right to defend its citizens from indiscriminate rocket fire” and “the need to de-escalate tensions and avoid more deaths,” the White House reported in a statement.
The current escalation began on Tuesday with the assassination by Israel of three senior Islamic Jihad officials in the Strip, triggering a strong reaction from terrorists in the enclave.
This incident took place a few days after a short upsurge in violence in the area, which included the firing of more than 100 rockets from Gaza after the death of Jader Adnana senior YIP member who died in an Israeli jail after 86 days on hunger strike.
In fact, one of the conditions that the Islamic Jihad would have presented to reach a ceasefire is the return of Adnan’s body, as well as the interruption of the Israeli policy of “selective assassinations”.
Adnan’s death also aggravated tension in the West Bank, which is experiencing a significant wave of violence and which today recorded the death of a Palestinian wounded yesterday during clashes with Israeli troops in the framework of a military raid.
