Writing BBC News World5 hours Image source, Reuters Photo caption, Palestinian civilians and militants were among those killed by Israeli attacks. At least 10 people were killed by Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip, including a senior commander of a Palestinian group Local health authorities reported that a girl was among the dead, while dozens of others were injured. Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said the attack came in response to “an immediate threat” from Islamic Jihad Palestine (YIP) following the arrest of one of its top leaders this week. The YIP fired more than 100 rockets at Israel as “an initial response.” Most of the rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome shield. Warning sirens were activated in several cities. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said they resumed attacks this Friday night, targeting positions of Palestinian militants. In a televised speech, Lapid explained that “Israel carried out a precise counter-terrorist operation against an immediate threat.” Among the sites targeted by the PIJ was the Palestine Tower, one of the tallest buildings in Gaza City, which suffered a heavy explosion and a plume of smoke. Four militants from the YIP, including Tayseer Jabari, as well as a 5-year-old girl, were among those killed since the attacks began, according to Palestinian health authorities. Another 55 people were wounded. Image source EPAP Photo caption Dozens of rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza. An Israeli military spokesman said the IDF was “estimating that about 15” Palestinian militants had been killed. The Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked said: “We don’t know how this will play out, but it could take time… This could be a long and difficult round of the conflict.” Speaking during a visit to the Iranian capital Tehran, YIP Secretary General Ziyad al-Nakhala said that they would respond “with force to this aggression.” “There will be a fight in which our people will win,” he continued. “There are no red lines for this battle … and Tel Aviv will be under the rockets of the resistance.” Meanwhile, the Islamist group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, said the militants are “united” in the battle and they will not remain silent. The arrest of Bassem Saadi On Monday night, Israel arrested Bassem Saadi, who is considered the head of the PIJ in the West Bank. He was held in the Jenin area as part of a series of operations following a wave of attacks by Israeli Arabs and Palestinians that left 17 Israelis and two Ukrainians dead. Two of the attackers came from the Jenin district. Image source EPAP Photo caption Palestinian Islamic Jihad is one of the main militant groups in Gaza. After Saadi’s arrest, Israel stepped up security measures for communities near its border with Gaza, warning that the YIP intended to attack civilians and soldiers. Road closures have paralyzed towns and villages in southern Israel. The Iranian-backed YIP is based in the Syrian city of Damascus and is one of the strongest militant groups in Gaza. The group has been responsible for many attacks, including rocket fire and shootings, at Israel. Israel and the YIP fought a five-day conflict in November 2019 after Israel killed a Palestinian commander who the Israeli government said was planning a imminent attack. The violence left 34 Palestinians dead and 111 wounded, while 63 Israelis were hospitalized. Israel said 25 of the Palestinians killed were militants, including those preparing to launch rockets.
