Israel-Gaza conflict 2014: Israeli intensified attacks kill dozens


0   0

Dozens of people were killed in Gaza on Monday night and Tuesday morning in Israeli assaults from air, land and sea, after Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warned of a long conflict ahead.

July 28 is believed to be one the heaviest nights of bombardments since the conflict started on July 8.

Al Jazeera reported that 11 people died in Gaza City after an airstrike destroyed a house in the Bureij refugee camp, as Israeli forces hit targets across the coast.

A government complex, the house of senior Gaza Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and Gaza television and radio stations were also hit by the strikes.

During the attacks, the only power plant in Gaza was destroyed by shelling from two Israeli tanks. A column of thick black smoke was reportedly seen rising from a burning fuel tank at the plant.

Hamas responded to the attacks by launching three rockets, one of which was intercepted by the Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. The other two landed in open spaces in Israel.

More than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed and more than 6,500 injured since the beginning of the conflict. The U.N. says that 75 percent of those killed were civilians.
