Tel Aviv: Israeli warplanes reportedly bombed Gaza a day after an agreement was signed to establish ties with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
According to sources, the Israeli Prime Minister claimed that there were rocket attacks from Gaza because they want the agreements reached with Israel to be halted after 1994. On the other hand, Hamas, Gaza’s ruling party, warned that tensions would rise if the bombing continued.
It may be recalled that Israel had signed the agreement with the Foreign Ministers of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in the presence of US President Donald Trump at the White House yesterday.
Protests and rallies erupted across Palestine following the agreement. The Israeli military said in a statement that about 15 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, nine of which were defused. Two people were injured by rockets in the southern coastal city of Ashdod.
“We were shocked by the rocket,” said a resident of Sderot, a town on the Gaza border. “It’s because of the agreement because they don’t want a peace agreement with us and they want to damage us.The Israeli military says fighter jets have targeted Hamas positions.”
Hamas has not responded to allegations of rocket fire, nor has it claimed responsibility. Israel has blamed Hamas and threatened to crack down on such actions.
