Israeli Jets Strike Gaza Destroying Boat Preparing To Meet Aid Flotilla - Reports

Last night, the Israeli Air Force carried out strikes on targets in the Gaza Strip destroying a boat, which was preparing to meet other boats that were trying to sail through Israel’s naval blockade of the region, according to local sources quoted by the media.

In turn, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claimed via Twitter that Israeli jets had “struck underground Hamas terror infrastructure in northern Gaza, as well as 2 additional military targets that belong to the terror organization’s naval force”.

According to the IDF, the strikes were a response to the event that took place on May 22 morning when some persons set an Israeli military post in fire.

The Israeli-Arab tensions in the area have grown significantly since the US officially recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and moved its embassy to the city.

The move has triggered a large wave of anti-US and anti-Israeli protests across the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Clashes between Palestinian and Israeli forces have resulted in multiple death of protesters. Only on May 14, about 60 protersters were killed by Israeli forces.
