Gaza calm will be restored if Israel reciprocates -Islamic Jihad

Worrisome legislation Exposing wrongdoing

Three Israeli soldiers were wounded, one moderately and two lightly, the military said.

Palestinian political youth activists in Haifa invite you to join the "From Haifa to Gaza" demonstration on Friday (June 1, 2018) at 9:00 pm in the German Colony in Haifa.

Late Tuesday, a spokesman for Islamic Jihad mentioned a ceasefire settlement had been reached to revive calm, although the Israeli military declined to remark.

The Israeli forces released footage on Tuesday, allegedly showing a series of Israeli airstrikes against the Gaza Strip.

Israeli Cabinet minister Aryeh Deri told Israel's Army Radio that he expected calm to be restored.

"They do not want to see any progress to be made between Hamas and Israel because it works against their ideology".

Sirens and explosions continued into the night time after Tuesday's eruption.

They said the attacks were in response to Israeli killings of dozens of people since March 30th, mostly in Gaza border protests against Israel.

It was the largest barrage fired from Gaza into Israel, and Israel's biggest response, since a 2014 war.

The United States requested Tuesday an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, the U.S. mission said.

Australia exempted from U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium
European Union leaders have responded angrily. "But we see no sign of that in this action today by the USA administration". Huge tariffs on imported steel and aluminium from Europe, Canada and Mexico have come into effect in the United States.

Kuwait has circulated a draft UN Security Council resolution on setting up an worldwide protection mission for Palestinians.

"Most of the launches were intercepted by the IDF's Iron Dome aerial defence system", the army said.

One mortar shell exploded near a kindergarten building, a military spokesman said, causing damage to the structure.

It isn't working. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vows that Israel will continue to pursue Iran and its terrorist proxies and make them "pay dearly".

On May 25, the City Council of Barcelona called for a comprehensive military embargo on Israel and demanded the Spanish government ensures its implementation.

In retaliation, Israel bombed dozens of Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets, including a terrorist supply tunnel, drone facilities, weapons caches and a rocket-making plant.

Israel and Egypt launched the joint blockade of the Gaza coast in 2007 after Hamas took control of the strip.

Amid worldwide condemnation of its use of lethal force at the mass demonstrations that began on March 30, Israel said numerous dead were militants and that the army was repelling attacks on the border fence.

The border area has been tense in recent weeks as Palestinians have held mass protests aimed at lifting an Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after Hamas seized power in 2007.

They peaked on May 14, when at least 61 Palestinians were killed in clashes as tens of thousands of Gazans protested the United States transfer of its embassy in Israel to the disputed city of Jerusalem the same day. Israeli forces have killed more than 100 people in those protests, including 60 in one day on May 14.
