Israel claims it intercepted a number of ‘projectiles’ following an aerial bombardment of suspected Hamas targets in Gaza on Saturday. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claim the strikes were in response to earlier missile attacks.
A video circulating on social media claiming to be evidence that Hamas is faking deaths in Gaza does not actually portray what has been claimed. And not only that – the footage is more than four years old.
The White House has accused Hamas of “gruesome propaganda” after Israeli forces killed over 50 Palestinians on the border between Gaza and Israel, as the US celebrated the transfer of its embassy to Jerusalem.
An Israeli minister has threatened Hamas leadership with “targeted elimination,” after the Islamist militant group released a video of top IDF officers in a sniper rifle crosshairs, ahead of the weekly ‘March of Return’ protests.
The IDF attack, which targeted a Hamas military compound, comes as retaliation for a breach of the border fence by a group of Palestinians, who allegedly brought improvised explosive devices into Israeli territory on Sunday.
The deaths during the 'Great Return' protest are the fault of Hamas, says the Israeli Prime Minister's media spokesman. According to him, Israel was only defending from an "onslaught" of Palestinians trying to cross the border.
