Zionist warplanes strike 100 targets across Gaza Strip in midnight air raids

GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — The occupation army attacked some 100 targets in Gaza Thursday overnight in response to two rockets being fired at Tel Aviv from the Gaza Strip the evening before, a first since the 2014 war.

Accordingto a preliminary occupation army assessment, the rockets were fired at Tel Aviv by mistake during maintenance work.

The occupation said the Iron Dome missile defense system was activated as a result of the launches. It is assumed that the rockets landed in open areas due to the fact that no damage or injuries were reported.

In an unusual move, the organizing committee for the March of Return in Gaza announced Friday morning that it has called off the weekly protest along the Israel-Gaza border in light of the flare-up.

The committee said in a statement that the march was canceled in an effort to prevent further escalation and Palestinian casualties.
