Israel Continues Attacks on Gaza, Killing Two More Palestinians
The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine has claimed the lives of two more Palestinians in an airstrike on the Ash-Shujaiyye Neighborhood in the east of Gaza. According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the attack also injured two Palestinians. The number of fatalities in the Israeli attacks on Gaza has now reached 28, including women and children.
The Israeli army has been launching air strikes on Gaza for the past three days, while Palestinian groups have been targeting settlements on the Gaza Strip border with rocket attacks. Five senior members of the military staff of Islamic Jihad were also killed in the Israeli attacks.
The situation in the region has been tense since the death of Palestinian prisoner Hıdır Adnan on May 2. Adnan passed away after an 87-day hunger strike against Israel’s “administrative detention” in prison without trial. Israel had refused to hand over Adnan’s body to his family, which further escalated tensions.
The international community has called for an end to the violence, with the United Nations and several countries urging both sides to show restraint. However, the situation remains volatile, and there are concerns that it could escalate into a full-scale conflict.
The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine is rooted in a long-standing dispute over land and sovereignty. While various attempts have been made to broker peace between the two sides, a lasting solution has yet to be found.
