Israel issues 'ROCKET ALERT' after 20 missiles launched from Gaza

Coveney condemns plan for Rockets fired from Gaza after Israel kills Palestinian on border
Bennie Garza | 26 February, 2020, 12:35

Rocket explosions pounded the sky in Israel on Sunday followed by sirens.

"A number of hours after the incident the spokesman for the military arm of Islamic Jihad tweeted a section from the Koran that left no room for doubt: That evening there'd be a storm", the paper said.

Two militants from Islamic Jihad were killed in Sunday's strikes on a compound outside Damascus, Syria, Islamic Jihad said in a tweet.

Islamic Jihad operates in both the Palestinian territories and Syria and fired more than 20 rockets from Gaza throughout Sunday.

However, a video, that is sparking outrage on social media, shows a bulldozer approaching the body as two unarmed men were trying to collect it.

"IDF fighter jets struck terror sites belonging to the PIJ terror group south of Damascus in Syria, as well as dozens of PIJ sites throughout the Gaza Strip", the IDF said in a statement.

Israel has targeted multiple points near the Syrian capital of Damascus, prompting air-defence intervention late last night.

Israel considers Iran a national security threat and says it won't tolerate Iran's presence on its borders.

A military aircraft also fired at a group of men preparing to launch rockets near the border, the army said.

"Following the successful thwarting of the attack near the Gaza Strip fence earlier this morning, an IDF [Israel Defence Forces] bulldozer extracted the body of one of the attackers", a military spokeswoman said.

There have been no reports of casualties at this point.

"Terror targets civilians. Israel targets terror".

"Hamas and Islamic Jihad need to understand, this can't go on", Netanyahu told reporters in the West Bank settlement of Ariel. Despite this, Islamic Jihad has continued to try carrying out attacks in the region.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars and numerous skirmishes since the group seized control of Gaza from the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority in 2007.

The Palestinian health ministry in Gaza confirmed that two men were transferred to the European hospital in Khan Yunis.

The Islamic Jihad compound that was hit was being used as a "hub" by the Palestinian movement for research and development of weapons, for manufacturing a rocket fuel chemical, and for training militants, according to the statement released by the Israeli military. Hamas is much more powerful than Islamic Jihad, and it has shown itself capable of barraging Israel with rocket fire for weeks at a time. "The global community should condemn the rocket fire from Gaza and act against terrorist organizations".

While the latest Israeli air attacks targeted only Islamic Jihad positions, Israel holds Gaza's Hamas government responsible for all fire coming out of the coastal enclave. "I'm talking about a war", he said.

Embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, facing trial over a series of corruption allegations, is again neck and neck with centrist challenger Benny Gantz, a former military general.
