MOHAMMED SALEM / REUTERS At least eight people, including a 5-year-old child and a leader of the Palestinian armed group Jihad Islamic Palestinians, were killed on Friday, August 5, in an Israeli strike on the Gaza Strip, local health authorities said. About 40 people were also injured. The Israeli army, for its part, estimated that fifteen people had been killed in its strikes. Israeli military spokesman Richard Hecht called the operation a “preemptive strike” against Palestinian Islamic Jihad and warned that it was “not yet complete”. The Israeli army had announced earlier in the day that it was “hitting the Gaza Strip” and targeting this organization. “The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement and its armed wing the Al-Quds Brigades mourn the death of the great jihadist commander Tayseer Al-Jabari” in Gaza City, the armed group reported. “The enemy has started a war against our people and we must collectively defend ourselves and our people, we will not allow our enemy’s policies to undermine our resistance,” Palestinian Islamic Jihad said in a statement.

The raids come after the arrest on Monday of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in the occupied West Bank, Bassem Saadi. The Israeli authorities feared reprisal attacks from the Gaza Strip, an enclave controlled by the Islamists of Hamas, where the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is well established. Shortly before the strikes, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz claimed that Israeli forces were “preparing for any action to be taken on all fronts, in the northern, central and southern regions of Israel. Israel”. “To our enemies, and particularly to the leaders of Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, I would like to insist: your time is running out. The threat [sur le sud d’Israël] will be eliminated one way or another,” he said, according to a statement. The Israeli army on Tuesday ordered the closure of border crossings, forcing thousands of Gazans, holders of work permits in Israel, to stay at home. The shutdown slowed the delivery of diesel fuel, usually trucked in from Egypt or Israel and needed to power Gaza’s power plant. This unique plant risks closing due to a lack of fuel, according to the warning given Thursday by its director.

Since 2007, Israel has imposed a strict blockade on Gaza, an enclave of 2.3 million inhabitants undermined by poverty and unemployment. Israel and armed groups in Gaza have fought several wars, the last of which was in May 2021. Israel’s last strikes on Gaza date from July 19: the Israeli army had targeted a Hamas position after a gunshot in coming from the enclave. The World with AFP
