Israel News Alert

Tensions escalate as Israeli army fires multiple rockets into the Gaza Strip October 24-25

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/25/2018, 12:00 AM until 10/28/2018, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jerusalem). COUNTRY/REGION West Bank

Event

The Israeli air force attacked multiple sites, including Hamas targets, in the Gaza Strip overnight October 24-25, including in the southern districts of Rafah and Khan Younis and in the northern city of al-Sheikh Zayid. The attacks were in response to rockets launched from Gaza into southern Israel. No casualties have been reported so far.

Context

Clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli security forces during a protest at the Israel-Gaza border on October 23, leaving one dead and three others injured. Palestinian protesters have been rallying at the Gaza border fence since March 30 in a Hamas-supported movement dubbed "The Great March of Return." Around 200 Palestinians and one Israeli soldier have been killed in border clashes since the protests began.

Advice

Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to avoid all protests due to the risk of violence. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
