Israeli Warplanes Strike Gaza for the Fourth Time Since “Cease-fire”

The Israeli air force, on Saturday, pounded the besieged Gaza Strip for the fourth time since the Egypt-brokered ceasefire on May 21, 2021, according to Quds News Network.

Israeli jets fired missiles at sites in the Bader and Al Sudaniyya regions of the tiny coastal enclave, there were no reports of any injuries.

The Israeli media claimed the airstrikes were in response to fires in nearby settlements, purportedly set by “incendiary balloons” released into the air by Palestinian resistance groups.

Furthermore, on Thursday night, the airforce hit several targets in the southern Gaza Strip, no injuries were reported.

Between May 10 and May 21, Israel bombarded the tiny coastal enclave, killing 230 Palestinians, until an Egypt brokered ceasefire was imposed on May 21, 2021.

On May 28, a statement by Michelle Bachelet, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights stated the following;

Appalling events in Gaza and the occupied Palestinian territory have once again called this Council into Special Session. We have recently witnessed the most significant escalation in hostilities since 2014.

According to figures verified by my Office, 242 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli Security Forces (the ISF) in strikes on Gaza, including 63 children. Thousands of others have been injured while it is estimated that over 74,000 Palestinians have been displaced. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, 28 Palestinians, including five children, were killed as of 24 May. At the same time, rockets launched by Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups killed 10 Israeli citizens and residents including two children, and forced thousands into shelters.

Palestinians have nowhere safe to hide from the advanced Israeli arsenal, while Israelis have bomb shelters and an air defence system which stops the majority of the rockets fired by the Palestinian resistance factions.

242 Palestinians were injured in the most recent Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, while 10 Israelis were killed. 63 Palestinian children were killed by Israeli missiles and shells, while 2 Israeli children were killed.
