Israel launches more than a dozen missiles against two Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, following a number of rockets fired overnight from Gaza into Israel, causing severe damage. No casualties were reported and no civilian structures were targeted or hit.
At least 35 rockets are fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip amidst yesterday's clashes between far-right Jewish demonstrators and Palestinians in Jerusalem. Israel retaliates by firing on targets operated by Hamas within the Strip.
A Hamas militant is killed and two others are injured when an Israeli tank fires into the Gaza Strip after a protest turned violent. The Israel Defense Forces action is retaliation for a shooting which lightly injured an officer, and for the brief incursion of two Palestinians into Israel.
Israeli airstrikes targeting Hamas weapons facilities in the Gaza Strip result in an explosion that collapsed a nearby house, killing a 30-year old pregnant Palestinian woman and her two-year old daughter. Four others were wounded, including the woman's husband and son, the Gaza Health Ministry said. The Israeli military said the airstrike was in response to Saturday's pair of rocket launches from Gaza at Israel, as well as two large riots that succeeded in breaching the border fence.
Hamas' leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, declares an "Intifada" against Israel in the West Bank and says, "Gaza will fulfil its role in the Jerusalem intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation" with Israel. Over 20 stabbing attacks have happened in the last 24 hours in Israel.
In response to over 25 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel on Sunday, the IAF carries out airstrikes killing 6 Hamas militants. Over 150 rockets and mortars have been fired into Israeli civilian areas over the past three weeks.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) reports that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are preventing it from building schools in Gaza; the Israeli Defense Ministry says it is doing so to thwart Hamas from building the schools next to Hamas military installations.
