IDF: Zero tolerance for Gaza rockets, but Israel's deterrence remains strong

Palestinian girls at the rally marking the 30th anniversary of the founding of Hamas in Gaza City on Thursday

In response, the army said it had targeted what it described as three military facilities in Gaza used as training and weapons storage sites by Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that controls Gaza which the U.S. and Europe Union consider a terrorist organization.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, including the Israeli-annexed east, which is home to key Muslim, Jewish and Christian shrines.

It is worthy of note that prior to the decision, the Israeli army shot down two Palestinian missiles that were fired from the Gaza Strip.

"Gaza and the West bank being occupied, but we have liberated a strap of our land and the rest is going to be liberated soon", al-Zahar asserted. "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine" read the caption in Arabic and English.

Al-Zahar called for Palestinian unity and said that "united we are much stronger and we demand the universe to stand behind the truth and help the oppressed to achieve our victory".

The Islamic Jihad statement made no mention of an Israeli attack.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a combative speech that the USA and Israel have found themselves isolated following President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Just days after the Israeli army destroyed an attack tunnel leading from the southern Gaza Strip into Israel, a senior army officer told residents of a kibbutz near the border that it likely wasn't the last such passage.

It is considered a terrorist organization by Israel, the United States and others.

The two signed an October reconciliation agreement that was supposed to see Hamas hand over control in Gaza by December 1, but the deal has faltered.

However, after every attack, Israel strikes posts in Gaza.

In response to earlier rocket fire, the IDF said Saturday it carried out airstrikes targeting weapons and military facilities that belong to Hamas.

The strikes came hours after Israel's air defence system intercepted two rockets fired from Gaza.Such rockets are generally fired by fringe Islamist groups but Israel holds Gaza's Hamas rulers responsible for any fire from the territory, report AFP.

Protests in other parts of the Palestinian territories, as well as across the Arab world, have broken out since Trump's announcement.
