Israel strikes Gaza Strip amid tensions over Jerusalem

Israel strikes Gaza Strip amid tensions over Jerusalem

An Israeli siren smartphone app has warned that missiles were fired at southern Israel near the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

After the assault from Gaza, Israeli jets targeted military sites belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

The IDF said the strikes on Gaza had been carried out with tank fire and from an aerial vehicle. The move sparked global opposition and prompted Palestinian leaders to call for three days of protest. The protesters also clashed with Israeli security forces firing tear gas and stun grenades, as well as rubber bullets and live ammunition.

Medical sources in Gaza told Ma'an that Muhammad Saleh Haddaf was severely injured and left bed ridden after an Israeli airstrike hit his home on 8 August 2014, killing four of his family members and injuring several others.

Reportedly, the leader of the Palestinian Islamist group, Hamas, has called for a new "intifada", or uprising, as protests broke out in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Bethlehem.

The Palestinians seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967, as a future capital.

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. The final status of the city is one of the most sensitive issues in terms of finding a negotiated settlement between Israelis and Palestinians, and most United Nations states don't recognize Israeli sovereignty over the city while the peace process is ongoing.
