Israel strikes Gaza after rocket fire

Israel strikes Gaza after rocket fire

The IDF blasted back at Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip Thursday evening, following Palestinian rocket fire at Israel.

Israeli troops responded to the protests initially with less-lethal riot dispersal measures and then with live rounds, injuring several of the "main agitators", the army said.

Clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli occupation forces when the latter attempted to prevent Palestinians from protesting. They threw stones and waved Palestinian flags, while the soldiers fired tear gas and gun shots at them.

Israeli occupation forces arrested 36 Palestinians across governorates and installed iron gates at the entrance of Abda village, located 10 kilometers southwest of the city of Hebron in the southern part of the West Bank, to sever all communications with the villages' residents.




He added that armed resistance factions in Palestine have received clear orders to be ready to counter this strategic threat, which endangers occupied Jerusalem and its future.

While Israel has always considered Jerusalem its capital, with the prime minister's office and parliament building located there, countries have avoided recognizing it as such to prevent damaging hopes for a two-state solution. It is the right thing to do.

In Palestine, the demonstrations began on Wednesday night, shortly after Trump's speech.

"Hamas movement is acting in a powerful manner for the launch of a new Intifada against the Israeli occupation; we need to formulate new strategies and polices to counter the threat and conspiracy against Jerusalem, against Palestine", he said. "If you lose it, then you have no dignity".
