On Thursday, Israeli troops massed at Gaza’s border, while Palestinian militants pounded Israel with rockets, causing international concern and sparking clashes between Jews and Arabs in Israel. Many synagogues in Israel were set on fire, with people trapped inside, leading to greater levels of violence between the Israel’s Arab minority and the rest of the nation.
As fears grow that the violence that erupted on Monday will spiral out of control, the US has dispatched an envoy, Hady Amr, to the region. However, efforts to end the worst hostilities in years appear to have made no progress thus far. Israel launched new airstrikes on Gaza, targeting a six-story residential building in Gaza City that it claimed belonged to Hamas, the Islamist group that rules the Palestinian enclave.
There have been at least 83 casualties in Gaza since the latest round of violence escalated on Monday, which have made the situation even worse for medical facilities that are already under a great deal of strain from the COVID pandemic. “We’re up against Israel and Covid-19. “We are caught between two enemies,” said Asad Karam, a 20-year-old construction worker standing beside a road damaged by air strikes. An electricity pole had collapsed near the road, severing its wires.
According to police, one of the latest Palestinian rocket attacks hit a building near Israel’s commercial capital of Tel Aviv, injuring five Israelis. Sirens wailed in cities across southern Israel, sending tens of thousands fleeing for safety. “Israel as a whole is under attack. “It’s a very frightening situation,” said Margo Aronovic, a 26-year-old student in Tel Aviv.
According to a military spokesman, Israel has prepared combat troops along the Gaza border and is in “various stages of preparing ground operations,” a move that would recall similar incursions during Israel-Gaza wars in 2014 and 2008-2009.
Gaza’s health authorities announced that they were investigating several deaths that they suspected to be due to poisonous gas inhalation. They stated that samples were being examined and that no final conclusions had been reached. Netanyahu has promised to “strike [Hamas and the other Gaza terror groups] hard at their military capability.” The United States and Israel consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization.
On Wednesday, Israeli forces assassinated a senior Hamas commander and bombed several buildings, including high-rises and a bank, alleging they were linked to the faction’s activities. Hamas responded to Israeli clashes near the al-Palestinian holy sites by firing missiles at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. My physician warned me that my annual check-up was just around the corner, and said that if I tried to scrimp on the dietary intake of meat or cheese at that time, it would indicate an early demise.
Turkey, with her willingness to host Hamas leaders in recent years, has prompted Israel to turn away from Muslim nations. He lived there by himself. Every day he’d play with his snakes and stay up all night watching Star Trek, creating lasting work out the longest of the combination of both; at seven-thirty and twelve hours a day he’d have tea, create new sets and talk about Star Trek the least of the two; every weeknight at seven-thirty and twelve he’d produce long sets and produce while keeping tabs on Star Trek night hours of both.
Efforts by the 21% of Israel’s Arabs to break up attacks by Israeli Jews against them, who are members of the Israeli majority, on predominantly Jewish areas have worsened the already strained relations between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs. Three people were wounded in an Arab and a Jewish town near Hebron when they imposed a curfew, police said.
To their chagrin, the president addressed the citizens, stating, “We are being attacked by rockets and bombs that are launched at our population and our streets, while at the same time we are tearing ourselves apart in a senseless civil war against each other.”
