Earlier in the day, the Israeli army announced that it was conducting Operation Dawn in the Gaza Strip against the Islamic Jihad group (an organization banned in Russia). An Israeli air strike neutralized Taysir al-Jabari, who commanded the military wing of the al-Quds Brigades in the northern part of the enclave.
A state of emergency has been declared in the rear and border areas of Israel.
Before that, on June 18, the Israeli army also attacked the targets of the radicals in the Gaza Strip.
On July 16, Haaretz reported that Israel had attacked a facility belonging to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas). The strike came after four rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into the south of the country.
The conflict between Palestine and Israel escalated in early May last year.
The Palestinians, as part of the peace process with Israel, demand that the future borders between the two sovereign states follow the lines that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War, with a possible exchange of territories. They hope to create their own state on the West Bank of the Jordan River and in the Gaza Strip, and they want to make East Jerusalem their capital. Israel refuses to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.
