May 10, 2021 (IDF Spokesperson’s Unit): The IDF strikes Gaza in response to missile attacks on Jerusalem and southern Israel.
On Monday evening, the IDF attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket barrage into Israel that included at least seven missiles fired towards Jerusalem.
According to Palestinian media, 22 people were killed, including nine girls, and another 95 were injured. A motorcycle was hit by a bomb in the northern Gaza Strip. According to Palestinians, at least two people were killed in an Israeli bombing near Beit Hanoun.
The combined rocket attacks on Jerusalem, Gaza border towns, and the anti-tank guided missile that struck a civilian car, according to IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman, was “a significant event that will not go unnoticed.”
According to Zilberman, “Hamas will feel our response to this event…it will last days, not minutes.”
Zilberman called it a “inexcusable event,” and cautioned that “if Hamas doesn’t understand it yet, they will after what we do.” We have some choices on the table.”
The South’s escalation came after a day of bloodshed in Jerusalem, where tens of thousands of Israelis assembled to commemorate Jerusalem Day, which marks the liberation of Israel’s capital city in 1967. Violence erupted on the Temple Mount and in the Old City. During the clashes, dozens of Palestinians and Israelis were said to have been killed.
