Several Israeli airstrikes on Gaza after the Attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque
After Israeli security forces attacked Muslim men and women worshiping in Al-Aqsa Mosque and arrested hundreds of Palestinians, Israel carried out large-scale airstrikes on the Gaza Strip between Thursday and Friday. Israeli armed forces have also launched rocket attacks on Palestinian camps in Lebanon. On the other hand, Hamas put the rockets on high alert to hit the target at long range.
The Israeli army fired shells and rockets at a Palestinian camp in Tire, southern Lebanon, on Friday morning.
Abu Ahmed, a resident of the camp, said that at least 2 shells fell near a Palestinian refugee camp near the city of Tire in Lebanon. A missile hit a farmer’s house near the camp, damaging the building.
According to Al-Manar channel of the Lebanese organization Hezbollah, the Israeli Air Force has targeted 3 southern areas of Lebanon, including a Palestinian refugee camp. The Israeli army announced at midnight on Thursday that it was carrying out attacks in Lebanon.
The Israeli army said in a tweet that it is carrying out airstrikes in Gaza.
The Israeli Prime Minister issued a statement on Thursday that Israel’s enemies, namely Gaza and Lebanon, will be attacked
Israeli media described the attack as the worst escalation since 2006, when Israel tried to target Hezbollah bases in southern Lebanon. But in 2006, Israel finally faced defeat. Palestinian media reported that Hamas and Hezbollah have put rockets on high alert to target long-range targets that could be used in response to Israeli military bombardment. No casualties have been reported so far in the Israeli attack. In videos shared on social media, the explosions can be seen lighting up the night.
The tension in Al-Aqsa Mosque started after an extremist Zionist group of Israel, Return to the Mount, announced to sacrifice a goat at the Dome of the Rock in Al-Aqsa Mosque. This group is demanding the construction of Suleimani Temple at the place of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
However, according to the agreement between Jordan and Israel regarding the arrangements of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jews are not allowed to worship in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in the past, the Israeli government has been arresting Jews who try to do so.
