Israel says it deployed troops to fight Hamas in the Gaza Strip five days after the bombing of a Palestinian army that threw more than 1,500 stones at a Jewish state, Israeli forces said.
“Israeli forces and ground planes are attacking Gaza,” the military said. A military spokesman later explained that no Israeli army had entered Gaza.
But the deployment of military personnel on the project indicates an escalation of the five-day conflict and leads to rumors that Israel is preparing to attack the city for the first time since the 2014 conflict killed 2,000 Palestinians and 72 Israelis.
Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since the military took power in 2007.
Israel spent five days launching several anti-war demonstrations in Gaza, killing 103 Palestinians, including 38 women and children, according to health officials. All 580 were injured.
Despite the bombing, Hamas continued firing on Israeli soldiers, and on Thursday prompted Israeli officials to intercept international flights from Tel Aviv. The military has killed seven Israelis this week, including a soldier and a child.
Israel has set up additional troops – including two paramilitary units and armed forces – near the Gaza border and has called for another 9,000 troops on Thursday. The military has said in the past that it is taking stock of all possible developments, including potential jobs.
Without tolerating violence, Egyptian authorities are trying to end the war, a Western diplomat said. Hady Amr, a staff member at the US office in Israel and Palestine, was also on a trip to Israel as part of Efforts by Biden management to address the issue.
Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, told reporters Thursday that Washington was making a concerted effort to achieve this. Russian President Vladimir Putin and UN Secretary-General António Guterres also called for an end to the war on Thursday. But a western diplomat said Israel had already rejected Egypt’s efforts, which share borders with Israel and Gaza, to stop the war.
Israel annexed Gaza in a war with Hamas in 2009 and 2014, activities that devastated Mediterranean poverty. The conflict killed more than 1,000 and more Palestinians in a row. However, Hamas has managed to retain a number of weapons-producing equipment. Since the 2014 war, Israel has been reluctant to send troops to Gaza for fear that its troops could be caught in the crossfire.
Israelis have been continuing their campaign against Hamas as the country resumes its years of violence.
Violence between Israeli and minority Israelis erupted in several Israeli towns this week, rocking the nation at its peak, opening the front door that led Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to swear to end the conflict with “power, power”.
The Arab-Israeli war has been raging for more than a decade in an ongoing war between Israeli troops and Palestinian forces in their territories, but such violence has added to the threat of violence, prompting pressure on the Israeli government.
Israeli Arabs make up about a fifth of the Jewish population, hold Israeli passports and vote in national elections. But they lament the stigma attached to their culture and traditions and the sympathy they have for the Palestinians which has made them the target of legitimate politicians.
Speaking on Thursday evening in the infamous city of Lod, Netanyahu vowed that security forces, working in partnership with Shin Bet, would be given a free hand to use force to quell unrest, telling them not to worry about “investigative agencies, investigators. and checks “.
“You have your support, don’t worry,” he said. “In preventing rioters, they must use force, force.” He also said he was considering approving the use of concentration camps, which are used in the West Bank to detain Palestinian people for a long time without lawyers, and to bring in an army.
On economic growth indicators, Israel said three rockets were fired into northern Israel from Lebanon on Thursday, threatening to reopen. Israeli forces say rockets landed in the Mediterranean, without damage,
It is not known who invented the rockets and the northern border of Israel and Lebanon has been quiet for the past few months. Lebanon is home to Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed group that fought a month-long war with Israel in 2006, as well as Palestinian refugees and terrorists. The commander of the Lebanese army said the incident was not immediately clear. He denied reports on Palestinian arrests.
The UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon, Unifil, said General Gen Stefano Del Col, the head of the mission, spoke with the Lebanese army and the IDF to improve the rocket attack. Hezbollah spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
