The animosity between the blocked Palestinian territory and Tel Aviv grew yesterday after a demonstration by Jewish extremists to the east of the city of Jerusalem, seat of one of the three most sacred places of the Islam, the Al-Aqsa mosque, which in the past has been the target of destruction attempts by Israeli inhabitants.
Today’s bombings at dawn chose as targets an apartment building in the area of Beit Lahia and the cities of Jabalia (both in the north) and Khan Yunis (south), whose populations total around two million people, according to the WAFA news agency.
Authorized Israeli spokespersons stated that the air raids are the response to the launching of incendiary balloons from Gaza; sources from Hamas, the armed movement that controls that territory, said that those artifacts are the answer to the demonstration of the zionist extremists in Jerusalem.
The new outbreak of violence shows the fragility of the cease-fire agreement, reached between the two belligerent sides to the ends of the past month of May, after 11 days of brutal bombings by air, land and sea by the Israely army, one of the most powerful of the world, holder of the atomic weapon.
The 11 days of indiscriminate attacks from Tel Aviv caused around 300 civilian casualties, a lot of them non-belligerent children, women and old people, and around two thousand maimed and wounded; 12 Israelis perished during the violence, two of them run over by their neighbors during a bombing alarm.
