Speaking at a memorial ceremony for former Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that Tel Aviv has developed ties with 6 states in the region despite their animosity towards Israel over the past decades.
Speaking ahead of the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu noted that while "rogue factions" were behind the recent Gaza "provocations", it "did not exempt Hamas", of responsibility. "We'll do whatever is necessary to return the peace and quiet to the Gaza border communities, and the entire south". Combined with the outbreak of the West Bank uprising, where Israeli soldiers are again targeted for a new attack, the incident is a real warning to the Israeli regime.The Israeli army confirmed that its fighter planes hit several targets in a Palestinian Resistance military complex in northern Gaza Tuesday night.
The attacks were in response to a rocket fired from Gaza late Saturday "in addition to the continued violence emanating from the Gaza Strip", the army said.
WAFA correspondent reported medical sources confirming that Musa Mohammad Musa, 23, a resident of the central Gaza Strip town of Deir al-Balah, succumbed to his injuries he sustained after being shot by Israeli forces during a protest to the east of al-Breij on March 1st. No one was injured. Explosive devices hung on their ropes exploded over Israel's Eshkol Council area without causing damage.Meanwhile, Israeli police evacuated a forest in the Sedot Negev Settlement Regional Council on Saturday afternoon, March 9, when a balloon carrying an anti-tank head from Gaza entered to land in that area.
"He died of his wounds on Monday", the ministry said in a statement.
Israel and Turkey in 2016 formally ended a six-year diplomatic rift that ensued when 10 Turkish activists were killed in a violent confrontation with Israeli commandos aboard a ship, the Mavi Marmara, that aimed to break the naval blockade on Gaza.
