“In the third rocket attack of the night, terrorists from Gaza fired seven rockets at civilians in southern Israel. Six of the seven missiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system,” the military explained.

In addition, the Israeli army says it retaliated against Hamas military installations in Gaza.

Let us remind you that since the beginning of August, Hamas militants began to launch balloons with explosive devices towards Israel. In response, the Israeli army attacked the infrastructure of the Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip.

As we reported yesterday [August 20 – ed.] several attacks on the targets of the Palestinian movement Hamas were carried out by the Israeli army.

“Terrorists fired explosive balloons from Gaza towards Israel during the day, which led to fires on the ground in southern Israel. In response, our tanks attacked Hamas military posts in Gaza,” the press service said yesterday.

On 15 August, reports also surfaced that Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system had intercepted two missiles fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel.

Background

On January 28, US President Donald Trump published the text of a plan to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, calling it the “deal of the century.” According to the plan, the state of Palestine is being created within the boundaries substantially smaller than those proposed by the UN in 1947.

Under the new US plan, the capital of Palestine is located in east Jerusalem. Trump’s proposal provoked a sharp reaction in the Arab world. The head of the State Duma’s committee on international affairs announced the futility of the “deal of the century”, especially since her presentation was held without representatives of Palestine.

Trump’s proposed “deal of the century” actually repeats the main points of the 2004 UN resolution on “two states,” but with important nuances that infringe on the rights of Palestinians and in reality recognize the status quo advantageous to Israel.

The mere proposal to take the Palestinian capital beyond the borders of Old Jerusalem, far from Islamic shrines, to the Arab neighborhoods of Kafr Aqab and Shuafat, to the refugee camp now located behind the “security fence”, was perceived by the Arab world as a sophisticated mockery.

The Arabs do not even discuss the remaining points of the proposed “peace agreement”: the main and almost the only thesis sounds: “we are offered to sell our shrines and decades of struggle for freedom for $ 50 billion.” Judging by the statement of the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and the reactions of the Arab press, the “deal of the century” did not bring peace prospects in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, but very seriously removed it.
