GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — A Palestinian has been killed in an Israeli air raid on the northern Gaza Strip, according to Gaza’s health ministry, amid a fresh escalation between Israel’s military and Gaza fighters.
Imad Nseir, 22, was killed in Beit Hanoun after Israeli warplanes targeted multiple areas in the beseiged enclave on Saturday morning after dozens of rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel.
The latest flare-up comes after Israeli forces killed four Palestinians in two separate incidents on Friday.
According to Al Jazeera network, the barrage of rockets fired from Gaza came after an Israeli drone strike in the north of the strip early on Saturday, which injured three people.
“We are looking at another military escalation, the first since last month’s in which we saw another exchange of air strikes and rocket fire out of Gaza, which seemed to end with some hopes towards some kind of longer-term resolution,” said Al- Jazeera correspondent in Jerusalem.
“There was a good deal of reporting about talks between Israel and Hamas mediated by Egypt with further relaxing of the situation likely to happen from the Israeli side,” he continued.
“Hamas says so far all they have seen is the relaxation in the martime controls allowing fishing out to 15 nautical miles from six, which has now been reduced again.”
