Israeli Warplanes Carried Out More Than 30 Airstrikes On Gaza, As Palestinian Rocket Attacks Continue (Videos, Photos)

Warplanes of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) carried out more than 30 airstrikes on the southern and southwestern parts of the Gaza Strip on the noon of May 3, as the situation in the Palestinian region continues to escalate.

“We have just started carrying out an aerial strike of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad targets across Gaza,” the Israeli military wrote on Twitter earlier.

The Palestinian Shehab news agency said that the Israeli airstrikes targeted positions and gatherings of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas Movement. The agency released several videos and photos of the airstrikes.

Meanwhile, Israeli sources reported that Palestinian fighters have launched more than 90 rockets at Israeli settlements around Gaza since the morning. According to Haaretz, at least one Israeli civilian was severely inured following a direct rocket strike to a high school in Kiryat Gat, near the city of Ashkelon.

The Times of Israel reported that the Israeli military Iron Dome anti-rocket system has successfully intercepted dozens of Palestinian rockets.

A day earlier, the Israeli military killed 4 Palestinian civilians and injured dozens others while they were protesting near the separation line around Gaza. The death of these civilians provoked the first rocket attack, which was carried out by the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and its local allies.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held security consultations with the military chief of staff and the head of the National Security Council over the situation in Gaza. The Israeli PM, who is facing an internal political pressure, will likely opt to de-escalate the situation, as usual.

    not only have the squatters locked up a couple of millions of the rightful owners of the land, the palestinians, in concentration camp Gaza, in order to kill them off, they are in such a hurry that they also have to bomb them. disgraceful and hitler would be green with envy. it’s about time that the world does to the squatters what they did to hitler and his gang of corrupt and criminally insane henchmen, bring them to court. i. e, netanyahu must end up before the icc and the rest as well. the only way forward is the complete destruction of what the squatters have built over the last 100 years on palestinian land.

      “hitler and his gang of corrupt and criminally insane henchmen” – Hitler wanted peace with Britain, but Churchill and the rest of the corrupt and criminally insane Anglozionists and Bolsheviks wanted total control of Europe. Don’t believe the crap you have been reading in the victor’s propaganda. It was meant to make you a more subservient, compliant sheep for them to lead by the nose . .

        Many Zionist Jews agreed with Nazism and applied the idea of defending the race perfectly in Palestine. Hitler had the idea of a united Europe as the sacred Roman Empire with a Germanic guide. He also had the idea that the Slavic peoples were not human and killed 20 million of them. While the Jews he wanted to transfer them all to Palestine and with the final solution deported them to Eastern Europe, the Slavs tried to kill them as soon as possible. The first shoah was theirs.

        Honestly, over the years I have questioned everything that was taught to me by the West when it comes to WW1 and WW2 and I have to agree with your statement.

        • Allan Greedspoon

          It’s a step by step learning curve isn’t it? Each step exposes more of the propaganda hooks that have been attached to our brains . .

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    I think that most people can agree that. Palestinian rockets up till this day have always been low yield and inaccurate and no ability to avoid defenses.
    It is obvious that their never was a two state solution. And that the Christian and Sunni Palestinian’s are going to have to fight their way out of this.
    They need to develop missiles now with multiple warheads. Like say 3 warheads per missiles. They need a bit longer range.
    So in the future they can launch them up, but when it comes time for them to come down and the iron dome plans to intercept them, the front cone needs to come apart and allow the 3 or 4 warheads to separate and each travel on their own.
    I have no idea what kind of resources the defenders have, so I do not know if they can pull this off.
    But obviously for a decade they have been smuggling in things like ammo, scopes, powders for rockets and other equipment.
    This seems like a necessity. The people of Yemen have gone from no home grown rocket development 5 years ago. To making some pretty good stuff today under a blockade.

  • hvaiallverden

    THE only good thing coming out of the war crimes against Palestina as I have said for years, decades in fact, is whom is hyrpocrits, whom is pushing up an fake humanistic face, everything, every god dammed thing is exposed thru the ass liking of the Tribe.
    Thank God for that.

    You see, as long I hammerd the west, the JudenRuski was happy, and nothing was a problem, and then when we came to what is de facto Russia, the ww2 senario, the Ruskie rats goes bonkers, yeah, Juden rats is russians, russians-judenrats, you never learn do you, it was Russian scums whom was an force to create the terrorstate ISISrael and so on.
    The facts are glearingly obvious, just as the Russians whom was cooping with the Prince of Darkness, yeah, to help Saudi-barbarians with ever more weapons, and somehow Russian rats are heroes.

    And the hysterical judenruskies are becoming dumber than the Hasbarats, at least they are better liars, and by the way, since some people are so keen on debunking, uh….. the kazarian “theory”, yup as before, the ruskiejuden scum never bother to educate them selfs, Khazaras are official Juden scums history witch they even have admitted, even tho I wrote about it decades ago, judenruskies, but hey, like the ruskie morons, I know facts, truth and shit like that is hard to swallow, when been buttf…. by your master, King Bibi and judenrat tales/historys aka bullshit.

    That, attack, yeah, how evil arent they, huh, not been nice when their children have their heads blown off, right RT, and to the morons beliving in Putin, you are in fact dumber than Trumptards, and eqaully clueless.

    Yeah, why bother, watch the Russians throw them all under the buss.
    Its after all, just bizzenizze.
    Never trust the Russians, never ever trust them.
    They are the scums of this earth, because they are the Khazars (slavs are halfbreed bastard race as the khazars to day) , since they slaughtered the real Russians, millions of them, and mostly chirstians, but the judenruski dont wanna talk about that either, apart from the judenscum raping europa, and do notise, they are indeed finding that cosy, laughs and like the ISISraeli scums, scorns everybody as nazis.
    Putin isnt nothing else but an fake judenrat.
    Its only Jews and the Judenruskies that can have an ball of the ww2, nobody else than Jews and Russians, never forget that, and I recomend to read their coments, it is self explanatory, we all see them for what they trully are, the scums of this earth, Russia is their seacret weapon, Russia is thei homeland.

    May the russians burn in hell along with their own in ISISrael.
    I will challange the judenruskie, next time, I will hit harder, low life scums, I trust an somali taxi driver before any jude/ruskie, anytime.

    peace

    • iosongasingsing

      To be so stupid you have to live on the monkey planet Wahab. First of all today the Nazis in Europe, see Ukraine, the Baltic Republics, Georgia, are commanded by the Jews and Israel, second, Islamic terrorists as well as in Kosovo instead, not to mention ISIS in Syria and Iraq. So if you are not an idiot you are in the pay of the Mossad.

    • Paul

      Lol, you finish your rant with peace, yet you spewed nothing but racist hate.

    The Nazi Jew from Tel Aviv hunts every week in the Gaza reserve, there are no human beings, only animals, for the Talmud Zionists. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2c3f7d8635fd4b90354a10e5a484050c781bad1386a8a035fd3be55f53461232.png

      As Benjamin NAZIyahu himself, I can confirm your comment 100%
      :)

      • iosongasingsing

        What a chosen and elected people, they have the III Reich’s racial laws that forbid mixed marriages, they are not normal, the universal principles of equality, compassion, fair and unjust do not concern the Jewish followers of the Talmud.

  • Benjamin NAZIyahu

    Gaza resistance factions have launched 300+ rockets since yesterday night!
    PFLP conducted a raid on an idf base across the Gaza border, eliminating countless idf troops
    PFLP > Hamas
    PFLP are the real heroes here… plus they’re pro-Assad and the hamas retards are not

  • Andrei

    Peace not war
    And second Palestinians don’t stand a chance against Israel
    So think before you act you cock sucker hamas

  • Paul

    So apart from footage of anti missile defences being used, there never seems to be any footage of explosions or casualties from these so called rocket attacks from Palestine. If the rockets are so ineffective why the hell would they bother using them when all they will get in return is retaliation with some of the most hi tech weaponry in the world. It only ever benefits the Israelis. They get to oppress the Palestinians even more and demonise them at the same time. Is it all just bullshit from Mossad or what?

  • Xoli Xoli

    Satanyahu world wide terrorism failed know poor Palistanians has to be butchered, and no USA military option will be on the table.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Statically Israel kill more human beings then any country on earth. Whereby Arabs and Muslims are majority on Satanyahu butcher manual.Israel is the biggest planner and orchestrator of wars.Israel warmongers dominate USA military intelligence and Pentagon war planners.

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      How did you calculate that “statistics”?
      Per capita or what?

  • verner

    the squatters take after the washington dc morons and attack, by air, defenseless parties only, like stone-throwing kids and women and children in CONCENTRATION CAMP GAZA. true bravery on display.

    joke aside – the squatters need to be sent packing asap, the squatters need to be made homeless in palestine so that they can all travel, green card in hand, to moronistan (aka usa – home of a feckless and corrupt and criminally insane neo-nazi junta of fatso, of bolton, of abrams, of jared kushner and the piece de resistance, donny the more than dumb dunce) and find out the hard way how despised they, the squatters, are everywhere, including by the ordinary under-educated redneck/hillbilly types who all are cheated out of what was rightfully theirs by the neo-nazi junta to the benefit of the squatters.
