The IDF struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Monday evening in response to a rocket barrage into Israel that included at least seven missiles that were fired toward Jerusalem.
Palestinian media reported that 20 people had been killed, including nine children, and that another 95 were wounded. One bomb struck a motorcycle in the northern Gaza Strip. In another strike, Palestinians said that at least two people were injured in an Israeli bombing near Beit Hanoun.
IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman said that the combined rocket attacks towards Jerusalem, Gaza border communities and the anti-tank guided missile that hit a civilian vehicle “is a significant event that won’t go by quietly.”
According to Zilberman, “Hamas will feel our response to this event…it will not last several minutes, but days.”
Calling it an “inexcusable event,” Zilberman warned that “If Hamas doesn’t understand it yet, they will understand after what we do. We have a number of options on the table.”
The escalation in the South came after a day of violence in Jerusalem where tens of thousands of Israelis gathered to celebrate Jerusalem Day, marking the liberation of Israel’s capital city in 1967. Violence broke out on the Temple Mount and around the Old City. Dozens of Palestinians and Israelis were said to have been injured during the clashes.
