According to Al Jazeera’s report, these rockets fell on residential buildings. So far 22 people have died and 545 have been injured.
Hamas has named this operation ‘Al-Aqsa Flood’. Here, the Israeli army has started ‘Operation Iron Sword’ against Hamas. Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif said – This attack is revenge for Israel’s desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. The army is attacking Hamas positions.

In recent days, media reports had claimed that Saudi Arabia may recognize Israel as a country on America’s initiative.
