Armed hostilities between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement which serves as the de facto government of the Gaza Strip, which has continued throughout the past week.
The current escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict started earlier this month, when unrest began in East Jerusalem over an Israeli court’s decision to evict several Palestinian families from the area.
As of Sunday evening, some 3,100 rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel and about 1,210 of them have been intercepted, while the Israeli Air Force has struck what it claims are Hamas infrastructure buildings in Gaza.
The situation on the border have resulted the death of nearly 200 Palestinians, including 58 children. Israel, meanwhile, has reported 10 people killed and 50 others seriously injured, while the Palestinian Red Crescent says that more than 1,300 Palestinians have been injured amid tensions with Israel.
