The Israeli-Palestinian military escalation has been developing in the Gaza Strip and the nearby area.
Since May 29, the Israeli Defense Forces (SDF) have attacked at least 65 targets in the Gaza Strip. The targets were allegedly belonging to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad Movement and included alleged facilities manufacturing rocket launchers and rocket engines.
The IDF also claimed that its forces are currently operating in Gaza.
The round of escalation started from mortar shelling from Gaza early on May 29. Throughout the day, Palestinian forces launched at least 70 mortar shells and rockets at Israeli targets. The situation is developing.
Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups claimed that “bombings will be met with bombings and blood with blood”. They described the recent increased wave of shelling on Israeli targets as a “response to the Zionist aggression and the crimes against our people and the members of the resistance.”
