A resident captured the moment when air strikes by Israel hit Gaza on Thursday (May 13).
Large explosions shook Gaza City early on Thursday (May 13) morning, hours after Israel pledged to keep pummelling Hamas in what has been the heaviest fighting since a 2014 Gaza war.
An Israeli air strike on a Hamas command post in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday (May 12) killed 16 Hamas figures, including a senior commander and weapons developers, Israel’s Shin Bet security service said.
The offensive is the heaviest between Israel and Hamas since a 2014 war in the Hamas-ruled enclave, and concern is growing that the situation could spiral out of control.
