Israel strikes Gaza after rocket attack

Israel strikes Gaza after rocket attack”

"Hamas and Islamic Jihad are hastening their own end when they join Iran and [commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force Qasem] Soleimani, and transform themselves into an Iranian tool".

The Israeli army has targeted Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip in response to a drone attack from the Palestinian enclave, the military said.

A Hamas security source said there were no casualties resulting from the Israeli strikes.

A security source in Gaza said Israeli "warplanes raided four positions" of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the Hamas military wing, in central and northern Gaza, causing damage but "no injuries".

Addressing the latest escalation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had been updated on the events and blamed Gaza's rulers, Hamas.

"Hamas is responsible for everything coming out of Gaza and all attacks will be met with a vigorous response", Netanyahu said in a statement. Israeli medical services said the 17-year-old son was in a serious condition.

The Israeli army said thousands of Palestinians took part in demonstrations along the fence, which included throwing "fire bombs and explosive devices" at soldiers.

Two Palestinian teenagers were killed by Israeli fire during protests along the Gaza border on Friday, the health ministry in said.

The IDF had no immediate comment on the deaths, and said some 6,200 Palestinians took part in the weekly "March of Return", including hundreds who rioted.

United Nations envoy Nickolay Mladenov called the killing of the two teenagers "appalling".

Since the outbreak of protests on the Gaza border a year ago, Israel has intermittently taken a number of steps to stem outbreaks of violence from the coastal territory, such as closing border crossings, cutting fuel shipments, and reducing the permitted fishing area off the coast of the Strip.

Citing Egyptian officials, Al Arabiya broadcaster reported in late August that Egypt had threatened with suspending its mediation efforts between Israel and Hamas if the latter continued shelling Israeli territory.
