Atrocities between Israel and the Gaza Strip have escalated resulting to several deaths on both sides. An apartment that was shelled by the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip caused death to three innocent occupants. At the Gaza Strip, a young boy and his pregnant aunt perished when an explosion ripped through their home. The clashes, after 22 days, resulted in the death of around 1,200 Palestinians on attacks made by Israel.
The seemingly major and bitter confrontation has caused fears in Tel Aviv as long-range rockets have been fired at the capital. The city of Rishon Lezion, which just around 40 miles north of the Gaza Strip has been also hit by long-range rockets. No damages were reported. The conflict is expected to worsen as the Hamas group does not have intentions to back down. Will Israel succeed in trying its best to lower civilian casualties as it had learned its lesson in the past?
