Israel Strikes Gaza and Lebanon After Rocket Fire; 2 Israeli Settlers Shot Dead in West Bank

HeadlineApr 07, 2023

Israel’s military launched airstrikes overnight in southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised that Israel’s enemies would “pay a price for any aggression.” The strikes followed rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza — and from Lebanon, in the largest such barrage since 2006. Two Israeli civilians reportedly sustained minor injuries. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said Israeli airstrikes hit a children’s hospital east of Gaza, terrorizing medical workers and patients but causing no injuries. In the occupied West Bank, gunmen opened fire on a vehicle near an illegal settlement near Jericho, killing two sisters and injuring a third person, their mother. Meanwhile, tensions were high at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem ahead of Friday prayers, after Israeli soldiers were filmed beating and tear-gassing Palestinian worshipers earlier this week, during the holy month of Ramadan. Later in the broadcast, we’ll speak with Mohammed El-Kurd, Palestine correspondent for The Nation magazine.
