Israeli Military Jets Bomb Gaza After Mortar Rounds Fired Toward Israel

HeadlineMay 29, 2018

Israeli military jets have bombed Gaza, after Israel claimed dozens of mortars were launched from Gaza toward Israel. This comes after an Israeli tank fired into Gaza Sunday, killing three Palestinians. Israel said the tank fire came after Israeli troops found a bomb planted along the border. Meanwhile, Palestinian protesters have launched two boats from Gaza in a bid to break the Israeli-imposed blockade. The boats will attempt to carry a group of about 30 people, including Palestinian protesters wounded by Israeli soldiers during the weeks-long nonviolent demonstrations in Gaza. The Israeli military killed more than 100 Palestinian protesters and wounded more than 12,000 during the crackdown to the protests.
