Had mobs been rampaging through any city in the world chanting “Death to the Jews” instead of “Death to the Arabs,” you can be sure this is not the cowardly, contemptible statement @EUinIsrael would have made. EU is part of the death-chanting occupier mob. https://t.co/cCriLewwEy

Israeli warplanes joined in the strikes on the besieged Gaza Strip and fired several missiles at locations in the north and south of the Gaza Strip causing fire and heavy damage to the sites as well as damage to homes in the vicinity of the attacked sites.
Israel claimed it attacked the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a series of rocket attacks from Gaza into southern Israel, most of which fell in open areas or intercepted by the Israeli Iron Dome.
