Rashida Tlaib: Palestinians Want to Be Free, It’s Israel’s Fault

What's the sin of my children?: Infants killed in Gaza shelling

Besides the cost in lives (4 Israeli civilians dead) and more than 40 injuries, the Israeli government is in the process of estimating the extent of the damage from about 700 rockets that landed on its cities and villages.

Relatives mourn for Palestinian Fadi Bedouan, 31, who was killed by Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, during his funeral ceremony in Beit Lahia, Gaza, May 6, 2019.

Palestinian terror groups score propaganda victories regardless of where their rockets land: if they land in Israel, the terror groups can claim victory; if they land in Gaza, the terror groups can blame Israel - and the media will dutifully comply. It commemorates its memorial and independence days this week, and militants had vowed to ruin the Eurovision song contest in Tel Aviv in mid-May.

With Gaza's beleaguered population of 2 million people increasingly turning its frustrations toward Hamas, the organization has been desperate to secure an easing of Israeli restrictions, particularly as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan approached.

But no official confirmation of such a ceasefire deal has come from Israel or its military.

Despite ceasefire reports, Israeli authorities have made a decision to keep schools in southern Israel-within a 40-kilometer (25-mile) radius of Gaza-closed for the day, according to the Times of Israel.

According to the Jerusalem Post, a news outlet of Islamic Jihad's rival Hamas published a report saying a "rocket of the resistance exploded inside the family's home due to a technical failure" before taking the report down.

Rashida Tlaib for her part had strong words for U.S. mainstream media, singling out the New York Times for "dehumanising" Palestinians in their coverage of Gaza.

"The battle is not over and demands patience and discretion", he said.

Even within his own ruling Likud Party, Netanyahu faced unusual criticism for not going further to quash Gaza militants.

Palestinian witnesses said he was killed in an air strike on his vehicle.

The violence began two days ago when a sniper from the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad fired at Israeli troops, wounding two soldiers, according to the Israeli military.

Israel said the 34-year-old was victim of a targeted assassination, a tactic not seen since the 2014 war. Israel said its strikes were in response to Hamas and Islamic Jihad firing some 690 rockets or mortars across the border since Saturday, with Israeli air defences intercepting more than 240 of them. The goal has been - and remains - ensuring quiet and security for the residents of the south. We hit over 350 targets. Israel's military reported no new air strikes in Gaza.

In Gaza, the economy has been ravaged by an Israeli-Egyptian blockade, years of fighting with Israel and Hamas's isolation and mismanagement. Israel's army had no comment.

Conricus said a Kornet missile had hit a vehicle and killed an Israeli civilian.

"They were a gross and blatant violation of global law, and the Israeli actions to neutralize rocket launchers and prevent further attacks are entirely justified", Hoyer said in a statement. On Monday, a cease-fire was reached after being brokered by Egypt and the United Nations.
