Israel says struck 130 Gaza military targets, 15 ‘operatives’ killed

Jerusalem (HRNW) Israel’s army said Tuesday that it had hit 130 “military targets” in Gaza, killing 15 “Hamas and Islamic Jihad operatives” in retaliatory strikes after Palestinian militia groups launched a flurry of rockets towards Israel.

“We have struck 130 military targets belonging mostly to Hamas,” the Islamist group that controls the blockaded Gaza strip, Israeli army spokesman Jonathan Conricus told reporters.

“According to our current estimates we have killed 15 Hamas and Islamic Jihad,” he said.

Violence has spiraled since clashes with Israeli police in the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound wounded hundreds of Palestinians.
