CONFLICT BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HAMAS INCREASINGLY ESCALATING




Mustafa AY – TDO – 14.11.2018 That Israeli aircrafts murdered two Palestinian children over suspicion of ‘possible organisation of attack on IDF troops on border’ in aerial strike led ongoing truce talks, mediated by Egypt, to remain inconclusive. From 3 weeks on, IDF’s aircrafts and artillery units are executing bombardment over Hamas’ targets, but have caused civilian casualties and vast damage on a TV station so far.

In retaliation to IDF’s aerial strikes, Hamas has launched over 450 missiles to Israeli soils. According to IDF’s statement, over 100 of those rockets were successfully intercepted on air by ‘Iron Dome’ air defence systems. However, remaining missiles falling on ‘empty’ soils led an Israeli citizen to be killed while leading physical damage to many other Israelis. After all, Israeli Ministry of Defence released a statement that they will continue to attack on Hamas targets and will remain indifferent to any truce calls from Hamas.
