Israeli army says that they are launching air, ground and troops attacks against Gaza Strip, Anadolu Agency reports.

Israel’s attacks on Gaza Strip since Monday leave 109 dead, including 28 children, 15 women, along with 621 injuries says the Health Ministry.

The Israeli attacks come as Palestinian protesters demanded an end to the forced displacement of families from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem to make way for illegal settlers. Israeli occupation forces also stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on numerous occasions and shot and abused Palestinian worshippers as they prayed the nightly Ramadan prayers.
