Israel Says Carrying Out Air Strikes "Throughout Gaza Strip"

Israeli media say six people were wounded by Palestinian fire, including a 19-year-old who was critically hurt when a mortar shell hit the bus.

The Palestinian resistance has again proved that its military power can deter the Israeli arrogance and aggression as the Egyptian efforts to end the recent escalation in Gaza attained their goal.

Palestinians stand next to the remains of a auto, that was destroyed following an Israeli air strike, in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on November 12, 2018.

Monday's attacks came one day after seven Palestinians and an Israeli soldier were killed in an undercover Israeli operation in the blockaded enclave.

Moments before the deal was announced, Israel's Security Cabinet instructed its military to continue pounding Gaza with airstrikes - defying warnings of retaliatory attacks from Hamas. Requests from Hamas for a ceasefire came through four different mediators. After the strike on the television station, Palestinian factions said they would extend the range of their rockets. Defense officials instructed the military to continue its operations in Gaza "as necessary", according to a statement. Armed factions in Gaza began firing rockets in response at communities across the border, which they vowed would "remain unlivable" as long as Israel persists with such actions.

Violence has simmered since Palestinians launched weekly border protests on March 30 to demand the easing of the blockade on Gaza and rights to lands lost in the 1948 war of Israel's founding.

Hamas, which is considered a terrorist group in the West, and Israel have fought three wars in the past decade.

But by today, thick plumes of smoke were rising above Gaza and southern Israel.

In Israel, at least 10 people were injured in the rocket attacks, the news service reports, citing medical officials. The Israeli military justified the attack by saying that the channel broadcasts "violent propaganda" against Israel and provides instructions on how to carry out attacks.

Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the army had sent additional infantry troops, rocket defence systems and intelligence units to the Gaza border. More than 170 Palestinians, most unarmed, have been killed by Israeli fire during the protests. One Israeli soldier was killed and another wounded in the raid.

Footage of the wind-driven wildfire was taken by a crew on board a Los Angeles County Fire Department Firehawk helicopter. On Friday authorities announced they had found nine bodies in Paradise, a town of 27,000 in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut short a visit to Paris because of the incident, returning to Israel on Monday for consultations with top security officials.

He said the Israeli military has enhanced its deployment along the frontier but has yet to call up reserves.

Baraka allegedly held leadership in Hamas's terror tunnel program and served as the commander of a Khan Younis terror battalion. The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs shared a screenshot of the alerts, accusing Hamas of "directly & intentionally" targeting civilians.

Why are Israel and Hamas enemies?

The clash that resulted from the blown covert operation killed seven Palestinian militants, including a local Hamas military commander, as well as an Israeli army officer.

An Israeli helicopter landed near the fence and took away the special forces troops, according to Al-Qassam.

Hamas faces a similar dilemma: another war would bring new devastation to Gaza, but the group does not want to be seen as caving to Israeli pressure.

One of these reportedly hit an empty bus which seriously injured a soldier.

The United Nations and Egypt, which works as an interlocutor between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers, were struggling in vain to broker a ceasefire, as Israeli civilians hid overnight in shelters from relentless rocket barrages and Palestinians cowered in basements from thundering airstrikes.

The rockets, which continued into the evening, lit up the skies of Gaza and set off air raid sirens throughout southern Israel.
