Violence Rages Between Israel & Gaza; Over 28 Palestinians Killed in Airstrikes

Over 28 Palestinians were killed and 93 were injured as Israeli fighter jets continued intensive airstrikes on the Gaza Strip for a third day in a row in response to rockets fired towards Israel.

According to reports, the conflicts have left 28 Palestinians, including 15 civilians, dead after another two were killed on Thursday afternoon in the town of Abassan, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza confirmed in a statement that the Israeli airstrikes have led to 93 injuries so far.

The exchange of fire between Israel and the joint chamber of military operations, comprising several Palestinian factions’ armed wings, including the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), came after a surprising Israeli airstrike on Tuesday in the Gaza Strip killed three senior PIJ leaders.

Egypt, Qatar, and the UN are mediating a ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas-led militant groups, including the PIJ. However, they fail to reach an agreement on ending this round of tension.
