Despite strong appeals from world leaders in occupied Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has vowed to continue the war, saying it will continue until Israeli citizens return to a peaceful life. On Tuesday, Netanyahu said that “Islamic Jihad” has suffered blows he did not expect.
Meanwhile, according to Reuters sources, Hamas and Islamist Jawad have said that at least 20 of its fighters have been killed, while Israel says that their death toll is at least 130. At least 217 Palestinians, including 63 children, have been killed in air strikes so far, according to Gaza’s health ministry, while more than 1,500 have been injured. Twelve people, including a 5-year-old boy, have been reported killed in Hamas rocket attacks in Israel.
