Israeli jets and helicopters have so far launched 5 strikes on #Gaza tonight. Streets are extremely busy this time in Ramadan.

Israel claims the airstrikes were in retaliation to a rocket fired from Gaza into Sederot.
The airstrikes took place as thousands of Palestinians were leaving mosques following a night-long prayer held on the 26th night of Ramadan, which is a holy night in Islam and is also known as the ‘night of power’.
