Hamas commander, six other Palestinian militants and an Israeli colonel were killed in Israeli undercover operation on Gaza-Israel border. This operation leads to intense fighting. In response to the air strike Palestine fired 17 rockets into southern Israel late on Sunday.
There were no reports of injuries or damage in Israel, but the military said a lieutenant-colonel, identified only as “M”, had been killed in the raid and another officer wounded. “In response to yesterday’s crime, the joint command of Palestinian factions announce the beginning of bombardment of the enemy’s settlements with scores of rockets,” Hamas’s armed wing said in a statement after funerals were held for the militants.
Israeli gunfire has killed more than 220 Palestinians since the start of the demonstrations, which have included breaches of Israel’s border fence.
