The escalation of violence continues between Israel and Hamas fighters. A Palestinian was killed and another seriously wounded by an Israeli strike carried out Wednesday on the North of the Gaza Strip. The two men were travelling on a motorbike in Beit Lahiya, not far from the border with Israel, when they were targeted by an Israeli drone, said a medical source told AFP. In the morning, at least five rockets were fired from the Palestinian enclave to Tel Aviv and its suburbs. Warning sirens were sounded and the projectiles were intercepted in flight by a battery ‘ Iron Dome’, a system for intercepting missiles, said Israeli military radio. Eve, Tel Aviv as well as Jerusalem had already been targeted by rockets fired from Gaza, controlled by Hamas. The Islamist group has claimed these shots in response to the Israeli offensive, which has made at least 28 dead and more than 100 wounded, according to a count established Tuesday evening. In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, the Israeli Army conducted not less than 160 raids in the Gaza Strip, in retaliation to the firing of rockets. "120 rocket-launching sites, 10 Hamas command posts and many tunnels" have been targeted, general Moti Almoz, told military radio. That brings in 430 the number of aerial attacks carried out by the Jewish State since the start of operation "border protection", he added. Other contested targets include two houses "of military leaders of Hamas" as well as "offices of the Ministry of the Interior, Hamas national security service", detailed the general. "The operation we launched will expand in the coming days", he said, while refusing to give details. Tuesday, the Israeli security cabinet authorized the recall of 40. 000 reservists for a possible operation on the ground of large-scale in the Gaza Strip. Reinforcements were deployed on the outskirts of Gaza, where the Agency France-Presse journalists saw troops, tanks and armoured troops. . For extra facts on this subject visit hyperlink.
