The militant wing of Hamas in control of the Gaza Strip, the Izzeddin al-Qassam Brigades, has announced a strike on an Israeli chemical plant. The Times of Iarael editor Emanuel Fabian announced this on his Twitter page on Friday, May 14.
It is noted that the attacked facility was located in the Kibbutz (settlement) of Nir Oz. The strike was carried out using a Shihab drone.
To date, Hamas has launched about two thousand rockets on Israeli territory, killing 9 Israelis and wounding dozens more. The latest victim was a 50-year-old woman who died at a hospital in the city of Rishon LeZion.
Earlier that day it became known that as a result of the Israeli attacks on the territory of the Gaza Strip 115 people died and about 600 people were wounded. The Israeli side, however, claims that most of the dead are members of terrorist groups or killed by Hamas rockets.
On Friday night, the Israeli Air Force (Air Force) and ground forces again began a massive bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
Prior to that, the Israeli Air Force attacked the internal security headquarters building and the Hamas weapons cache. It is noted that the office of the head of internal security of Rafah city and other units were located in the headquarters.
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict escalated in early May. At that time the Israeli authorities began evicting several Arab families in East Jerusalem. Protests and riots followed.
