More than 1,000 rockets fired at Israel, continuous strikes on the Gaza Strip and at least 40 dead: the armed clash between Hamas and the Hebrew state gives no sign of appeasement on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 and raises fears at the UN a “full scale war”.
Hamas launched a rocket salute on Monday evening in the direction of Israel in “solidarity” with the more than 700 Palestinians injured in clashes with the Israeli police on the Mosques plaza. In retaliation, the Israeli air force on Tuesday evening pulverized a 12-story building where Hamas tenors had their offices and, overnight, another 9-story building with the premises of a local television, housing and shops. .
Faced with the violence, the UN Security Council is today holding a new meeting behind closed doors as a matter of urgency.
