On August 9, the Israeli military announced that a warplane of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) carried out an airstrike on a 5-story building in the area of Rimal in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The Israeli military said that the airstrike was a response to a rocket attack on the city of Be’er Sheva, which is located more than 38km away from Gaza.

While the Israeli military claimed that the building was used by Hamas’ security forces as a military base, Palestinian and Egyptian sources revealed that the building was an Egyptian cultural center. According to the Palestinian news agency Shehab, 18 civilians were injured as a result of the Israeli airstrike.

Earlier, the Israeli military said that the Hamas Movement launched more than 180 rockets and mortar shells on Israeli settlements around the Gaza Strip in the last 24 hours. The Israeli Iron Dome anti-rocket system managed to intercept 30 projectiles only.

The escalation began a day earlier following a shooting attack that targeted an Israeli engineering vehicle north of the Gaza Strip. The Israeli military held the Hamas Movement responsible for the attack and conducted more than 140 airstrikes in response.

Israeli sources reported that the Israeli government is now discussing the possibility of launching a large-scale military operation in Gaza, similar to “Operation Protective Edge” in 2014. However, many observers doubted that the government will approve this plan.

          We can discuss it too. Black helicopters supplying SDF and extracting ISIS commanders at eastern Deir Ezzor.

            So how are they (SDF) Daesh? Did you ever think those were captured Daesh commanders by the SDF and maybe the US thinks they can get info out them? Doesn’t really seem fishy when people make all sorts of deals when they get caught and are about to face punishment. People will make all sorts of deals to lessen the punishment. The whole situation is too complex to get it simplified like that. But please educate me on how the SDF is Daesh.

            Excellent view, agree.
            SAA has priority to free people first (towns and villages), while SDF priorities are oil fields similar to … (You can kick me with Kobani here).

        Heh, can u recognize satir here? Don’t u find strange Hamas targeting sand in the desert and IDF responds leveling building where HQ Hamas supposed to be, only killing civilians and not Hamas commanders? If IDF would stroke Hamas each time, there would be no Hamas. I do find it strange.

      This statement about Hamas isn’t stupid.

      Be careful Hamas is a party of Palestinians. Palestinians have never welcomed Israeli migrants to come and settle in Palestine. When the surrounding nations become wakeup then there will be no US, NATO, Wahhabi and Israel in entire Middle East.

    Netanyahu and Co converting Palestine into graveyard.
