Since the morning, the ISRAELI army has been violently attacking Gaza.
The Israeli army fired warning shots at pro-Palestinian protesters who had crossed the border from Lebanon to Israel.
The military said: “The suspect broke through the fence and set fire to the area.”
After a few days of heavy Israeli air strikes and then heavy artillery fire, some of the frightened residents of northern Gaza were unwilling to wait to see if they would happen again after the Israeli military ground attack in 2014.
During the heavy shelling on Thursday night, Rewaa Marouf captured her child and fled the town of Beit Lahiya, not far from the northern border between Gaza and Israel.
She ended up in a UN-run school in the Jabaliya refugee camp. Dozens of people crowded into the car. There were rows of people on the road going south by car, donkey cart or on foot.
“We were sitting at home with the children when the bombardment was launched suddenly in all directions,” Maruf said in a school classroom in Jabaliya.
She added: “The house next to our house was bombed and shrapnel hit our house. We still don’t know if the house we left was also bombed.”
Those who go south-some in wheelchairs dragging their property-can barely pass through the houses destroyed in the conflict in Gaza, a coastal enclave with a population of 2 million people, and because of the Israeli blockade. Isolated from the outside world.
Israel claims to be trying to prevent weapons from entering Gaza.
As part of the protracted conflict with Hamas, the Israeli army launched two ground attacks on Gaza in just ten years in 2009 and 2014. Hamas, an Islamic organization that has ruled Gaza since 2007, militants fired rockets at Israel.
The Israeli military said on Friday that it has launched air strikes against Hamas and other militant targets in the Gaza Strip and will continue to use force “when necessary.”
Israel, the United States and the European Union see Hamas as a terrorist organization. Hamas said it has the right to protest the occupation of Palestinian territories and demand the establishment of an independent state.
Neither party showed any signs of easing the conflict that broke out on Monday, and Israeli forces have gathered at the border. For some residents of Gaza, especially those in the northern regions, this indicates that it is time to move on.
