Jerusalem BLASTS TARGETS in Gaza After 'Shooting Incident — ISRAEL UNLEASHED


Four Palestinians were said killed. At least 120 Gazans were wounded. Gaza was relatively quiet after midnight, residents said.

Conricus said that he did not have details of which Palestinian faction carried out the shooting attack but that Israel holds Hamas responsible for all attacks from Gaza. "We hope it lasts".

On Saturday, Israel pounded Hamas targets in its largest bombardment campaign since the 2014 war, as Gaza militants fired dozens of rockets toward Israel.

The Israeli army said they struck 60 Hamas sites including weapon manufacturing sites, a drone warehouse and a military operations room. The kites and balloons have started more than a thousand fires and torched more than 7,000 acres of fields, according to Israel's military.

The authors thus conclude, "Until governance changes, or Hamas recognizes the state of Israel, abides by previous diplomatic agreements and renounces violence, there is no good option". "Responsibility for the destruction and for human life will be on Hamas", a statement quoted Mr. Lieberman as saying. "Right now", the U.N.'s Special Coordinator for the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov, said in a tweet on Friday. Not next week. Not tomorrow.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, who holds little sway over Hamas, called for worldwide intervention to prevent an escalation of the violence, his office said.

The Israeli Air Force launched a "wide-scale attack" against Hamas military targets in Gaza on Friday, according to a statement from the Israeli military.

Mueller requests immunity from prosecution for 5 witnesses in Paul Manafort trial
Manafort's trial before Washington , D.C., District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson is expected to take place in September. Mueller says the witnesses haven't been publicly identified in the case, and haven't been charged.

"Any reasonable person who sees the... farmland that has been scorched [by incendiary kites and balloons] understands the intolerable nature of the situation", he told a group of Israelis living near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone.

Since March, Palestinians have regularly protested at the fence dividing Gaza from Israel-calling for an end to Israel's blockade and to be allowed to return to the land from which they fled during the 1948 war with Israel.

Israel has been accused of using excessive force against Palestinian protesters, an allegation its leaders have denied.

Israel's army and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office declined to confirm a truce was reached.

"In the face of Zionist threats, we say the resistance will continue, the marches will continue and its tools will continue to vary and take different forms, including the kites", he said.

The IDF fired a tank shell at a Hamas post Saturday morning after several Palestinian suspects attempted to infiltrate the border into Israel in the northern Gaza Strip, the military said.

It came only a week after most severe exchange of fire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza since the 2014 war.
