According to medical officials, the Israeli regime's airstrikes killed Enas Khammash, a pregnant Gazan woman, and her 18-month-old daughter Bayan, as well as another Palestinian.

Late on Thursday, an Israeli air raid flattened a five-storey building which hosted a cultural centre in Gaza City but which the army said was used by Hamas security forces.

Gaza militants fired some 200 rockets at Israel and the Israeli military carried out a similar number of airstrikes in Gaza in this latest round of violence.

A Palestinian rocket struck the southern city of Beersheba late in the afternoon, landing in an open area.

In his piece, Greenblatt cited two cases, in 2011 and 2016, in which he says Palestinian firefighters joined their Israeli counterparts to combat massive conflagrations that had spread and wreaked havoc in Israel, as examples of the kind of cooperation that should exist between the two entities.

Abu Mujahed, spokesman of the Popular Resistance Committee, a smaller faction in Gaza, said on his Facebook page: "Upon Egyptian and global efforts, a ceasefire between Palestinian resistance began conditional on the commitment of the occupation".

At least three Palestinians died in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in a CNN report.

On the Israeli side, at least seven people were wounded.

Israeli Cabinet minister for construction and housing, Yoav Gallant, said that "whatever is needed to be done to defend our civilians and soldiers, will be done, no matter what would be the price in Gaza".

Hamas Vows 'Dire Consequences' for Israel, Amid Latest Gaza Border Flare-Up
It released a video appearing to show militants shooting from a watchtower before a tank shell hits the position. Israel says Hamas, which rules Gaza, is using the protests as cover to carry out cross-border attacks.


Israeli warplanes struck dozens of targets in the Gaza Strip and three people were reported killed there, while Palestinian militants from the territory fired scores of rockets into Israel in a fierce burst of violence overnight and into Thursday morning.

After four hours of discussion about the escalation in the south and the hard situation in which Israelis there are living, Israel's Ministerial Committee on National Security instructed the IDF to "continue to act with force against terrorist elements". Local health officials said 18 bystanders were wounded outside of the building by the blast.

The Gaza Strip is home to more than 2 million Palestinians, over 70% of which are refugees who were forcibly expelled from their homes in present-day Israel when the state was established in 1948.

The Gatestone Insitute just published an investigative article detailing this corruption which has filled the coffers of the Hamas top since it violently took over control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007.

Rocket warning sirens sounded nearly non-stop in the southern Israeli towns and border communities near Gaza from sunset on Wednesday.

Israel has killed more than 150 people since March when Palestinians began to stage protests on the border to demand an end to the blockade and the return of the Palestinians to the occupied territories. Some rockets landed in the communities, and many others were shot down by the Iron Dome, which is created to intercept only rockets headed towards population centers. "In response, the IDF targeted over 150 terror targets in the Gaza Strip", the IDF said on Twitter.

Al-Arouri's presence in Gaza could be the reason Hamas suddenly escalated the hostilities against Israel. An Israeli soldier was killed by a Gaza sniper during this same period.

The two were killed when an Israeli airstrike hit their home in the Jaafari area of central Gaza.
