Israel yesterday warned it would use “uncompromising force” against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip should the UN Security Council not condemn the alleged launching of two rockets towards Tel Aviv.
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, sent a letter to the UN Security Council in which he called on its members to meet and condemn the two homemade rockets allegedly launched from the besieged Gaza Strip towards Tel Aviv.

In the letter, Danon wrote:
“The terrorists that fired these rockets into Israel’s most populated civilian area did so while hiding behind Palestinian civilians in Gaza and exploiting them as human shields.”
Israeli forces have shot at and injured over 25,000 Palestinians in Gaza since March 2018. Israel's siege on Gaza prevents these wounded – many of them young amputees – from accessing medical care. https://t.co/qKsKZp0rbR pic.twitter.com/7ygh989Vvt

“A terrorist organization that tries to harm Israel will encounter relentless and uncompromising force.”
Israel on Thursday night struck civilian facilities including schools, hospitals and mosques, claiming to have hit over 100 targets. These airstrikes were reminiscent of Israel’s 2014 assault on Gaza, in which more than 2,000 Palestinians, including more than 500 women and children, were killed.
