Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza Tuesday morning and targeted a building in which Hamas extremists lived. Two tunnels along the border were also targeted in these attacks, which were dug up by the extremists. At the same time, Hamas and other armed groups also fired several rockets towards Israel. Gaza health officials said that cross-border fighting had started on Monday evening, in which 24 Palestinians, including nine children, were killed. Most of the deaths were due to air strikes. The Israeli military said 15 of the dead were extremists. Gaza extremists fired more than 200 rockets towards Israel, injuring six Israeli civilians. Earlier on Monday, there were several hours of conflict between the Palestinian people and the Israeli security forces. In the last 24 hours, more than 700 Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem and the West Bank region. 500 of them had to be admitted to hospitals. The reason for the violence is the assertion of Jerusalem by both Palestine and Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Monday that this fight could continue for some time. Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters on Tuesday that the military was in the early stages of targeting targets in Gaza. A plan to target these targets was made long ago.
This tension and conflict is taking place at a time when there are situations of political instability in Israel. Netanyahu is the caretaker prime minister right now. The Gaza Strip militant group Hamas launched rocket attacks from Monday evening. By Tuesday morning, Hamas and other militants had fired more than 200 rockets towards Israel. Conaricus said the Israeli military targeted 130 targets in Gaza, including a high-rise building in which Hamas extremists lived.
