- IMO, a false flag attack by the Zionists as a pretext for the final ethnic cleansing of Gaza? Driving the Palestinians into the Sinai desert?
- Israel Launches Air Strikes On Gaza After “Barrage Of Mortar Shells” Fired At Israel; Netanyahu Says Retaliation Imminent

With the financial crisis back front and center in Europe, Israel picked a good day to remind markets that geopolitics remains as much of a gaping risk factor as ever, and after Palestinian militants on Tuesday launched what Reuters described as their heaviest mortar bomb barrage against Israel since the 2014 Gaza war, Israeli aircraft retaliated striking more than 30 Gaza camps according to AFP.
More than 25 projectiles were launched from the Gaza Strip and Israel’s planes attacked three of the Iranian-backed armed group’s facilities. There were no immediate reports of casualties from either side, with Israel claiming that the Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted the majority of the missiles, but one exploded in the yard of a kindergarten, damaging its walls, about an hour before it was scheduled to open for the day.
“The IDF is currently operating in the Gaza Strip. The explosions heard are related to this activity,” the Israeli forces said in a statement released on Twitter. “A barrage” of at least 28 mortar shells was launched towards several locations in Israel, according to the IDF.
