Hundreds of rockets fired at Israel amid deadly Gaza airstrikes
Israel has been attacking what it says are Islamic Jihad operatives and infrastructure.
The first wave of attacks began before dawn on Tuesday (local time), when the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) fired from planes and helicopters against multiple targets in Gaza.
These attacks on Tuesday left 13 people dead, including three leaders of the Islamic Jihad militant group and 10 men, women and children.
Hamas, the Palestinian militant movement that rules Gaza, issued a statement pledging a “firm response from the unified resistance forces, whose unity is manifesting itself in its greatest form on the ground.”
