An airstrike on the Gaza strip

Reconciliation deadline missed, yet Abbas, Sissi agree to further cooperation

"Tonight, in response to the rockets fired at Israel, the IDF targeted 3 Hamas terror facilities across Gaza using IAF [Israeli Air Force] platforms".

According to a written statement from the Egyptian presidency, the two leaders emphasized the importance of Palestinian reconciliation as a "strategic option" in the face of the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, as reported by Anadolu Agency (AA).

Also, the occupying Zionist regime forces stationed at Nahal Oz military base, along the border with Gaza, opened live fire at Palestinian protesters who approached the border fence, injuring four of them, including two seriously.

Such rockets are generally fired by fringe Islamist groups but Israel holds Hamas responsible for any fire from the territory.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed.

The strikes came hours after Israel's missile defense system intercepted two rockets fired from Gaza.

In 2016, ADB assistance totaled $31.7 billion, including $14 billion in cofinancing. Growth is expected to reach 3.6% in 2017 compared to the 3.3% originally projected.

It claimed the facilities were used as "training and weapons storage compounds". Violent confrontations followed in the Gaza Strip, where Hamas set up a rival government.

In response to Trump's decision, leaders from the 57-member OIC recognized East Jerusalem as the occupied capital of a Palestinian state and called on the worldwide community to do the same, according to the final communique from the group's emergency summit.

Thousands of Palestinian men, women and children, brandishing Hamas' green flags or sporting green scarves, gathered on Thursday at the al-Katiba Square in Gaza City.

Under its new political chief Ismail Haniyeh, who took over from Meshaal, Hamas has giving political control of Gaza back to the Palestinian Authority, a move prompted by pressure from the PA and Egypt, which resulted in a reconciliation deal in October.

The coastal territory suffers from 43 per cent unemployment and worsening blackouts.
