The ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the rise. Israeli airstrikes in Gaza and reaction rockets fired at Israel from Gaza. In this situation, the UN fears that a “full-scale war” could break out.
According to Israel, the Palestinians have fired more than a thousand rockets in the past 46 hours. On the other hand, on Tuesday and Wednesday Israel carried out airstrikes on hundreds of targets in Gaza. The attack destroyed a 13-story residential building in Gaza.
There was the office of Hamas leaders. A BBC report claims that at least 43 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli air strikes since the violence began on Monday. Among the dead in Palestine are 13 children. On the other hand, six Israelis were killed in the missile attack.
A general secretary Antonio Guterres expressed deep concern about the ongoing violence.
An Israeli was killed in the violence. He was killed when a missile fired from northern Gaza hit a jeep at the border. Three other people were injured in the accident. A 52-year-old man and his 16-year-old daughter were killed when a rocket fired by Palestinians hit a car in the city of Lode, near the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv.
On the other hand, the streets of Gaza are full of the rubble of the building that collapsed in the Israeli airstrikes and the wreckage of the burnt car.
The clashes between the Palestinian and Israeli sides erupted after days of continuous clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli police for reasons of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Israeli army says 1,050 rockets and mortar rounds have been fired from Gaza so far. Of these, 850 fell on Israel’s borders or were intercepted by their air defenses (Iron dome). And 200 Israelis remained stranded in Gaza after failing to cross the border.
Video from Gaza shows rockets piercing the night sky. Some of them are detonated by Israeli defense missiles. Missile attacks by Palestinians increased after air strikes on residential buildings in Gaza. Israel said it is targeting rocket launchers, skyscrapers and the homes and offices of Hamas leaders.
Hamas says it is escalating attacks as enemies target residential buildings.
Residents were evacuated from buildings before Israeli fighters attacked. Even afterwards, Palestinian health officials are providing information on the civilian casualties in the Israeli attack.
A Gaza reporter named Fadi Hanna tweeted a video of the blast in Gaza on Wednesday morning. He wrote: ‘What is happening is incredible. What I saw this morning was more horrifying than during the last three years of the war. ‘
The international community has called on both sides to end the violence. They expressed concern that the situation could get out of control.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called on all concerned to step up efforts to restore peace. Tor Weinland, the United Nations envoy for Middle East peace, said the two sides “are moving towards a full-scale war”.
Fatou Bensouda, the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court, said he was monitoring the situation with deep concern.
“Israel has the right to defend itself,” he said Ned Price, a spokesperson for the State Department. On the other hand, the Palestinian people also have a right to their own security and safety.
Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said the attack was just the beginning. Attacks on “terrorist organizations” will continue. They will bring back peace in the long run.
On the other hand, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a televised speech: “If Israel wants to increase, we are ready for it. And if they want to stop, we’re ready. ‘
