Israel News Alert

Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza Strip January 22, killing at least one suspected militant; further cross-border clashes possible over the coming days and weeks

TIMEFRAME expected from 1/22/2019, 12:00 AM until 1/25/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jerusalem). COUNTRY/REGION West Bank

Event

Israeli forces carried out two rounds of strikes on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, January 22, killing at least one suspected militant and wounding two others. The strikes come after an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier was wounded by live fire from the Gaza Strip. Following the cross-border clashes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly decided to prevent Gaza from receiving a Qatari money transfer. Such actions may provoke further cross-border clashes and Palestinian demonstrations along the Israeli-Gazan border in the coming days and weeks.

Advice

Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to avoid all protests and demonstrations 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.
