Israel strikes on Gaza strike despite UN and US call for restraint – BBC News




Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told Gaza Strip militants that they will “pay dearly” after another day of escalating violence between Israel and the Palestinians. Despite calls from the UN and the United States to take action, the Israeli air strike destroyed an apartment block in Gaza City when residents were warned to flee. Hamas in Gaza and Islamic Jihad responded by firing numerous rockets at the Israeli city of Tel Aviv and its neighborhoods. A woman was killed in the attacks. The latest violence in the East began around the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem, which is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Clashes have erupted between Ramadan between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces who have imposed severe restrictions on the site. Tensions in Israel’s occupied East Jerusalem since 1967 have also led to many plans to expel dozens of Palestinians from a neighborhood claimed by Jewish settlers.
