Over 6,900 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip against Israel during a fortnight of Palestinian-Israeli conflict aggravation, the press service of the so-called Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported on Saturday.
“More than 6,900 rockets fired from Gaza at Israel,” the press service said.
Over 1,400 people were killed, over 4,600 were wounded, and more than 200 hostages were taken, it added, noting that at least 1,000 Hamas fighters were “neutralized”.
The latest escalation between Hamas and Israel began on October 7, when the Palestinian fighters launched a surprise attack on multiple locations along the Gaza border in response to Israel’s repeated aggression against Palestinians and desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque.
