Israel and Gazan Fighters Agree to Ceasefire After Israeli Air Raids on Enclave

HeadlineMay 03, 2023

Israeli forces and various armed factions in Gaza have agreed to a ceasefire after Israeli airstrikes rained down on the besieged Gaza Strip, following rocket launches from Gaza in response to the death of Palestinian hunger striker Khader Adnan while in an Israeli prison. Israel claimed it only targeted military sites, but Gazans rocked by the air raids said civilian areas were hit.

Khalil al-Qadi: “As you can see, the situation is very bad. There are airstrikes, and people are scared. We are shop owners, and all shops are closed. The whole country is closed. I usually leave at midnight, but today we closed our shops around 9:00 or 8:00 as a result of the tension in the country.”
