Israeli man is killed by Hamas rocket in Tel Aviv as five-month-old boy is pulled ALIVE from rubble

An Israeli man has been killed by a Hamas rocket in Tel Aviv and a five-month-old baby boy has been pulled alive from rubble following an overnight air strike on a refugee camp in Gaza City.

Several people also received minor injuries after rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, according to the Times of Israel

The launch came in response to Israel’s airstrike on a house killing 10 Palestinians in Gaza City, with harrowing pictures show nurses holding a boy, who was reported to have been found next to the body of his deceased mother, at Al-Shifa Hospital. 

A three-storey building in Shati refugee camp collapsed following the airstrike, killing at least 10 members of an extended family – eight children and two women – the highest number of fatalities in a single hit since the battle erupted earlier this week. 

Another Israeli airstrike has also demolished Jala Tower, which housed Al Jazeera television and Associated Press, with broadcast footage showing a huge mushroom cloud of dust and debris erupting from the 13-floor building.

A US envoy arrived for talks, with the United Nations (UN) Security Council set to meet on Sunday. US Secretary for Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Hady Amr, was due to meet Israeli leaders in Jerusalem, where the latest outburst of violence began, on Saturday before heading to the occupied West Bank for talks with Palestinian officials.  

He wants to encourage a ‘sustainable calm’, State Department deputy spokeswoman Jalina Porter said. 

But despite intensifying diplomatic efforts to ease five days of fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, Israel’s air force struck several sites in the coastal enclave overnight, while rockets again tore towards Israel. 

Mohammed Hadidi told reporters his wife and five children had gone to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday with relatives. She and three of the children, aged six to 14, were killed, while an 11-year-old is missing. Only his five-month-old son Omar is known to have survived. 

Eleven Palestinians died in clashes in the occupied West Bank on Friday and there were fears of worse violence today as Palestinians mark Nakba (Catastrophe) Day, when they commemorate the estimated 700,000 people who were expelled from or fled their homes in what is now Israel during the 1948 war surrounding its creation.

Washington has been criticised for not doing more to end the intensifying violence after it blocked a UN Security Council meeting scheduled for Friday. 

The overall death toll in Gaza since Monday now tops 140, more than 30 of them children. Around 950 people have been wounded.

United Nations Security Council to meet on Sunday over violence

The United Nations (UN) said the Security Council would meet on Sunday to address the violence.

But Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave no indication that Israel was ready to ease its campaign.

‘I said we’d deliver heavy blows to Hamas and other terror groups, and we’re doing that,’ Netanyahu said.

‘They’re paying and will continue to pay dearly for that. It’s not over yet.’

Israel estimates that more than 30 leaders of Hamas and its ally Islamic Jihad have been killed.

It has hit sites it describes as military targets such as Hamas bomb-making facilities and the homes of senior militant commanders.

‘There was no warning,’ said Jamal Al-Naji, a neighbour living in the same building. ‘You filmed people eating and then you bombed them?’ he said, addressing Israel. 

‘Why are you confronting us? Go and confront the strong people!’

The Israeli military did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Hamas said it fired a salvo of rockets at southern Israel in response to the airstrike.

Egypt opened its Rafah border crossing with Gaza on Saturday to allow in 10 ambulances carrying seriously injured Palestinians for treatment in Egyptian hospitals, medical officials said. 

Meanwhile, Israel ‘destroyed Jala Tower in the Gaza Strip, which contains the Al Jazeera and other international press offices,’ Al Jazeera said in a tweet. 

The strike on the building housing media offices came in the afternoon, after the building’s owner received a call from the Israeli military warning that it would be hit. 

Broadcast footage from Al Jazeera, the news network funded by Qatar’s government, shows the building collapsing to the ground after the Israeli air strike, sending up a huge mushroom cloud of dust and debris. 

Israel, which is also trying to contain an outbreak of internal Jewish-Arab violence, is facing its bloodiest conflict with Palestinian militants in Gaza since a 2014 war.

Its bombardment began on Monday after the territory’s Islamist rulers Hamas fired rockets towards Jerusalem in response to a bloody Israeli police action at the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound in annexed east Jerusalem. 

More than 2,000 rockets have been fired at Israel since then, killing nine people, including a child and a soldier. Over 560 people have been wounded.

Between 7pm Friday and 7am Saturday, some 200 rockets were fired at southern Israel, over 100 of which were intercepted by air defences, the Israeli military said.

Israel’s response has seen it hit nearly 800 targets, including a massive assault Friday on a Hamas tunnel network dug under civilian areas.

Tower blocks and other multi-storey buildings have been levelled.

Some 10,000 Palestinians have fled homes near the Israeli border for fear of a ground offensive, the United Nations said.

‘They are sheltering in schools, mosques and other places during a global Covid-19 pandemic with limited access to water, food, hygiene and health services, said UN humanitarian coordinator for the occupied territories, Lynn Hastings.

‘All the children are afraid and we are afraid for the children,’ said Kamal al-Haddad, who fled with his family to a UN-supported school in Gaza City.

Early on Saturday, the Israeli army said it had hit a Hamas ‘operation office’ near the centre of Gaza City, with additional overnight strikes targeting what the military called ‘underground launch sites’. 

Gaza’s infrastructure, already in widespread disrepair because of an Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after Hamas seized power in 2007, showed signs of breaking down further, compounding residents’ misery. The territory’s sole power plant is at risk of running out of fuel in the coming days.

The UN said Gazans are already enduring daily power cuts of 8-12 hours and at least 230,000 have limited access to tap water. The impoverished and densely populated territory is home to 2million Palestinians, most of them the descendants of refugees from what is now Israel.

The conflict has reverberated widely. Israeli cities with mixed Arab and Jewish populations have seen nightly violence, with mobs from each community fighting in the streets and trashing each other’s property.

Eleven people killed by Israeli fire during fierce clashes in the West Bank 

The West Bank saw fierce clashes on Friday, with the Palestinian health ministry saying 11 people were killed by Israeli fire.

A Palestinian security source said the fighting was the ‘most intense’ since the second intifada, or uprising, that began in 2000.

Violence on Fridays in the West Bank has become a routine part of the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but the latest unrest was fuelled by developments in Jerusalem and Gaza.

‘It would be shameful to remain quiet with what’s going on in Gaza,’ said Oday Hassan, 21, who was protesting in the West Bank town of Al-Birah.

At the least one of the Palestinians killed was shot dead after attempting to stab a soldier north of Ramallah, said the Israeli army, which early Saturday reported a new attempted knife attack during ‘a violent riot’ in Nablus.

In annexed east Jerusalem, overnight clashes hit Palestinian neighbourhoods across the city. In Shuafat, masked Palestinian protesters threw stones and petrol bombs at police, who responded with tear gas.

Late on Friday, someone threw a firebomb at an Arab family’s home in the Ajami neighborhood of Tel Aviv, striking two children. A 12-year-old boy was in moderate condition with burns on his upper body and a 10-year-old girl was treated for a head injury, according to the Magen David Adom rescue service.

In the occupied West Bank, on the outskirts of Ramallah, Nablus and other towns and cities, hundreds of Palestinians protested the Gaza campaign and Israeli actions in Jerusalem. Waving Palestinian flags, they trucked in tires that they set up in burning barricades and hurled stones at Israeli soldiers. At least 10 protesters were shot and killed by soldiers. An 11th Palestinian was killed when he tried to stab a soldier at a military position.

In east Jerusalem, online video showed young Jewish nationalists firing pistols as they traded volleys of stones with Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah, which became a flashpoint for tensions over attempts by settlers to forcibly evict a number of Palestinian families from their homes.

On Israel’s northern border, troops opened fire when a group of Lebanese and Palestinian protesters on the other side cut through the border fence and briefly crossed. One Lebanese was killed. Three rockets were fired toward Israel from neighboring Syria without causing any casualties or damage. It was not immediately known who fired them.

The tensions began in east Jerusalem earlier this month, with Palestinian protests against the Sheikh Jarrah evictions and Israeli police measures at Al-Aqsa Mosque, a frequent flashpoint located on a mount in the Old City revered by Muslims and Jews.

Hamas fired rockets toward Jerusalem late Monday, in an apparent attempt to present itself as the champion of the protesters. 

Meanwhile, the UN said the Security Council would meet on Sunday to address the violence.

But Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave no indication that Israel was ready to ease its campaign. I said we’d deliver heavy blows to Hamas and other terror groups, and we’re doing that,’ Netanyahu said.

‘They’re paying and will continue to pay dearly for that. It’s not over yet.’

U.S. President Joe Biden has expressed support for Israel while saying he hopes to bring the violence under control. 

Israel estimates that more than 30 leaders of Hamas and its ally Islamic Jihad have been killed.

It has hit sites it describes as military targets such as Hamas bomb-making facilities and the homes of senior militant commanders.

Hamas has fired some 2,000 rockets toward Israel since Monday, according to the Israeli military. Most have been intercepted by anti-missile defenses, but they have brought life to a standstill in southern Israeli cities, caused disruptions at airports and have set off air raid sirens in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
