Israel’s Military Bombs Gaza Strip After Shooting Down Rocket Fired at Southern Israel

HeadlineApr 19, 2022

Israeli warplanes launched overnight air raids on the Gaza Strip, after Israel’s military said it shot down a rocket fired from the besieged Palestinian territory toward southern Israel. Israeli officials said the airstrikes hit a Hamas weapons manufacturing site. The Palestinian Health Ministry did not report any deaths or injuries from the attack. The escalating violence came after a bloody weekend in occupied East Jerusalem, where Israeli police repeatedly used rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas to clear unarmed Palestinian worshipers from the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Those assaults left 158 people injured as Israeli police arrested over 450 Palestinians.
