Al Mayadeen correspondent in Gaza has also reported that sirens could be heard in the settlements surrounding the Strip. On the other hand, Israeli media reported that at least one missile had been launched toward the settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip.
“Israeli violation in Gaza will lead to a major escalation”
Palestinian resistance sources told Al Mayadeen that the shoulder-mounted missile is being used by the resistance for the first time against enemy planes.
The same sources divulged that the missile used to target the planes raiding southern Gaza is a Russian Strela missile.
The enemy's violation of the rules of engagement in Gaza will be met with a response and will lead to a major escalation, Palestinian resistance sources concluded.
It is noteworthy that the Palestinian resistance factions in Gaza announced, a few days ago, that they "stand with Palestinians in Al-Aqsa Mosque", holding the occupation "fully responsible for the repercussions of ongoing violations, and warning of a "close confrontation" with the occupation if it continues its aggression.
