Israel Hammers Gaza After 200 Rockets Hit Israel
Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said he had no information on the woman and child being killed, but noted a pregnant Israeli woman was taken to hospital Wednesday night after a rocket landed nearby.
Israel initially said the two fighters were shooting at Israeli soldiers, but Hamas said they were involved in a training exercise that senior officials were attending.
The Said Meshal Cultural Centre confirmed on its Facebook page the offices in Gaza City had been destroyed, saying the building also hosted offices for the Egyptian community in Gaza.
The demand Israel fully opens the Keren Shalom border crossing has nothing to do with Hamas' desire to improve the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza strip but everything with rampant corruption within the top of the terror organization.
Three Palestinians have been killed, including a pregnant woman and her 18-month old daughter, according to the health ministry in Gaza.
The Israeli military said seven people were wounded by Palestinian rockets and mortars that hit southern Israel across the border.
IDF said demonstrators were throwing rocks and burning tires at Israeli troops, causing them to respond with live fire "in accordance with the rules of engagement".
Hamas official Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement that it was Israel who was responsible for the violence, and that "in the event of continued aggression, shelling and killing of the Palestinian people in Gaza, the resistance will not be silent".
The second paragraph continues with the obfuscation, reducing the long night of Palestinian attacks that sent Israeli civilians to bomb shelters throughout the night, and Israel's eventual response, as an "exchange".
While some local media outlets were reporting that Muhammad succumbed to his wounds early Thursday afternoon, the Gaza Ministry of Health has maintained that he is still in critical condition and being treated in the ICU.
The 140-square-mile strip, under partial blockade by Israel for more than a decade, suffers from chronic unemployment and a lack of infrastructure and services. Across the border, rocket warning sirens sounded nearly non-stop from sunset on Wednesday in Israeli towns and villages where residents sheltered in bunkers. A statement issued by his office before reports a truce had been reached said the forum instructed the military to "keep acting with force against the terrorists".
The Hamas announcement came shortly after Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet ordered the army to take unspecified "strong action" against Gaza militants as the military reinforced units along the border. Some rockets landed in the communities, and many others were shot down by the Iron Dome, which is created to intercept only rockets headed towards population centers.
In Sderot, the Israeli city near the Gaza Strip, a gaping hole could be seen in front of a small, three-storey building. Large turnout at the protests has also been driven by widespread desperation in Gaza, amid worsening conditions linked to the blockade.
The two were killed when an Israeli airstrike hit their home in the Jaafari area of central Gaza.
UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov said the United Nations had engaged with Egypt in an "unprecedented effort" to avoid serious conflict, but cautioned that "the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people".
Palestinians look at damage at the site of an Israeli air strike in Al-Mughraqa on the outskirts of Gaza City, Aug. 9, 2018.
