Written by Samson Ojeniran on May 10, 2023
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have fired more than 60 rockets towards Israel, after the Israeli military said it carried out a series of air strikes on Islamic Jihad rocket launchers.
This comes a day after 15 people in Gaza were killed in Israeli air strikes, including three Islamic Jihad leaders.
Islamic Jihad swore revenge, warning Israel to expect its reaction anywhere, at any moment.
Israel’s prime minister said any escalation from militants would be met with a “crushing response”.
Meanwhile, tensions remain high in the occupied West Bank after Israel carried out arrest raids overnight.
