Since Monday, Hamas and its allies have launched about 2,300 rockets from Gaza toward Israel, Reuters reported, quoting the Israeli military, which said about 1,000 rockets were intercepted and about 380 fell into the Gaza Strip.
Israel, meanwhile, said it has launched more than 1,000 air and artillery strikes into Gaza, Reuters said.
Israel has faced international criticism for civilian casualties during three previous wars in Gaza.
The recent violence is the biggest battle between the Palestinian militant group and Israeli forces since the 2014 war in Gaza. It was sparked by growing unrest over control of Jerusalem and attempts by Jewish settlers to take over Arab-controlled communities.Dapatkan update berita pilihan dan breaking news setiap hari dari Kompas.com.
