Dozens killed as Israel-Gaza violence escalates

by admin

Heavy exchanges of fire between Palestinian militants and the Israeli military continue, with at least 30 people killed in Gaza and Israel.

Militants have fired more than 400 rockets towards Israel since Monday night, killing two Israelis.

Israel says it hit 150 targets in Gaza in response. Health officials there say 28 Palestinians were killed.

The international community has urged both sides to end the escalation, which follows days of unrest in Jerusalem.

The militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, said it was acting to defend Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque from Israeli “aggression and terrorism” after the site, which is holy to Muslims and Jews, saw clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians on Monday that left hundreds injured.
