Earlier today, Israel launched a deadly raid against the Palestinian government in Gaza targeting Hamas’ Abu Jarad position in the south of the Strip. According to reports, the area was fired upon twice using Israeli F-16 fighter jets.
Hamas has confirmed that the raid claimed the lives of two of its members; Adnan Ishtiwi and Ghassan Abu Amr, and injured several others who were transferred to the al-Shifa’ hospital for treatment. Israeli army sources have confirmed that Israel carried out the attack in response to resistance fighters firing rocket grenades into the western Negev. Hamas did not return fire.
The Israeli navy also recently opened fire on the Gaza coast shooting a Palestinian fisherman.
