Fatalities rise as Israel-Hamas clash aggravates

Several Hamas intelligence leaders were killed as the conflict between Israel and Hamas intensified. The warfare is perceived as the most intensive aerial exchange in years.

Israel launched a major airstrike into Gaza, killing around 35 Palestinians, including 10 children, as per the Health Ministry. On the other hand, the Islamist group and other Palestinian militant groups fired rockets at Tel Aviv and Beersheba, killing five Israelis, including three women and a child.

In Israel, many people rushed for shelter and safety amid the thunderous sounds of explosives and missiles. As per Reuters, Israelis ran for shelter or flattened themselves in communities more than 70 km up the coast as the blast resounded through the area.

In Tel Aviv, air raid sirens and explosions were heard across its metropolitan area, late into the night. The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu visited the mixed Arab-Jewish town of Lod, where a situation of complete mayhem had broken out on account of two people being killed in a rocket strike.

Netanyahu has declared a state of emergency and publicly denounced the “anarchy” in the streets that claimed the lives of people, leaving many others injured. The combat between Israel and Hamas is termed as the worst since a 2014 war in Gaza.
