A total of 31 Palestinians have been killed, including six children and four women, and 265 others have been injured in the Israeli occupation’s aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip since Friday, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.
In the meantime, the missiles launched by the Palestinian resistance movements hit the occupied city of Jerusalem.
As Israeli attack on civilians in Gaza continues, several groups of Zionist settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, under the protection of the Israeli police.
The Israeli army’s spokesperson said that the forces carried out raids on rocket-launching sites throughout the Gaza Strip. The raids resulted in the murder of Khaled Mansour, a member of the military council and commander of the southern region in the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement.
Israeli media reported that there were contacts with Egypt for a humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip on Sunday. Reuters quoted two Egyptian security sources as saying that an Egyptian intelligence delegation arrived in Israel on Saturday, and will travel later to Gaza.
Reuters also quoted an official in the Islamic Jihad Movement as saying that intensive mediation efforts were made on Saturday evening, and that the movement listened to mediators, but these efforts have not yet reached an agreement.
The Israeli occupation forces announced targeting 140 Islamic Jihad sites in Gaza, saying that 580 missiles had been fired from Gaza since the start of the military operation until Sunday morning. They also announced the arrest of 19 Palestinian Islamic Jihad activists in the West Bank on Saturday evening.
