In response to Hamas fireballs, the Israeli army has again bombed Gaza, and fresh tensions threaten to end last month’s ceasefire agreement.
Ground Report | New Delhi: Israeli airstrikes Gaza; The Israeli military says it carried out airstrikes on Gaza late Thursday night, “in response to Hamas bombings.” The Israeli strikes were so loud that their voices could be heard in Gaza City, but it was not immediately clear how many lives and property were lost.

The Israeli military said in a statement on the latest attacks that “balloons have been sent to Israel from the Gaza Strip for several days. In response, warplanes have targeted Hamas-linked military compounds and a rocket launcher.
The statement added that the Israeli military “has stepped up its preparations for a variety of reasons and will continue its attacks on Hamas strongholds in Gaza.”
US Secretary of State Anthony Blankenship says he spoke by telephone with his new Israeli counterpart, Yair Lipid. “We discussed the United States’ strong commitment to Israel’s security, our bilateral relations, and the challenges ahead,” he said.
The latest airstrikes on Gaza and the sending of fireballs to Israeli soil come at a time when Egypt is trying to further strengthen the ceasefire agreement reached last month.
