Israeli Army has said, its fighter jets hit 25 targets in the Gaza Strip early today in response to rocket fire from the Palestinian territory.
In a statement, the Army said, around 30 projectiles, including rockets, were fired overnight from Gaza towards Israel. The fresh hostilities come with tensions high in Gaza after mass protests and clashes broke out along the border on 30th March.
At least 132 Palestinians have been killed. There have been no Israeli fatalities. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and other international stakeholders have warned that Gaza is close to the brink of war.
Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008 and observe a tense ceasefire that is regularly shaken by hostile acts.
