Following Israel’s ongoing airstrikes against the Gaza Strip, Palestinians have taken to social media to express their dismay and anger at Israel, as well as the international community, for Israel’s continuing bombing of the besieged costal enclave.
The intensified bombing began hours after Palestinian resistance factions in the Gaza Strip (Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad) have sent a barrage of projectiles into southern Israel following Israel’s killing of three fighters from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad yesterday.

Mohammed Smiry criticized the world’s double standards and their different responses to Palestinian resistance and Israel’s killing of Palestinians.
-Israel killed 120 Palestinians.
-Israel killed another 3 Palestinians in bombing
-Palestinian resistance fires back.
-Israel plays victim and launches dozens of airstrikes against Gaza.#GazaUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/fR3z7f7kAb

Warda from Gaza noted that there is no safe place in Gaza.
There is no safe place in Gaza, it’s just a prison that the occupation attacks when it wants. Gaza is attacked by land, sea and air in the face of international passivity.#GazaUnderAttack #SaveGaza#IsraelCrimes pic.twitter.com/P63P1Jdbsm

The Gaza Strip has not seen such an escalation since the 2014 Gaza offensive, in which Israel killed over 2,200 Palestinians and injured over 12,000 others.
The escalation comes after Israel has killed over 115 Palestinians since March 30 during the Great March of Return.
