Israeli Army Strikes Several Border Areas In Gaza

08 December 2017

Three Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli occupation forces in Khan Yunis city south of the Gaza strip.

At least one tank shell was sacked into an area, east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, and was followed by many live rounds.

Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip Thursday afternoon, according to another IDF statement.

The army also fired several missiles and shells into Palestinian lands, in borer areas of the Gaza Strip. An IDF spokesman said two rocket launches had been identified with both falling inside the Gaza Strip.

Israel holds Hamas responsible for all activity happening in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier in the day, Israel troops were heavily deployed on the outskirts of Gaza city in anticipation of any possible protests by Palestinians. The IDF confirmed the rockets did not reach Israeli soil and the Al-Tawheed Brigade, a Jihadist Salafi group, claimed responsibility for the rockets.

On Wednesday, Trump announced the relocation of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a move which drew numerous negative reactions from Muslim communities around the world.

In the wake of Trump's announcement world leaders warned of the deterioration of the situation in the region as the Palestinian Hamas movement ruled out the possibility of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and urged to launch another Arab intifada - an uprising against Israel.

Trump's announcement, which was warmly received by Israel, overturns decades of precedent and runs counter to worldwide consensus, with no other country now taking the same stance.

The Palestinians seek the eastern sector of the city as the capital of their future state.
