Tel Aviv (Israel) – Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on 12th May that the military operation will continue in the Gaza Strip for as long as necessary and that there is currently no end in sight. He said, “Israel is not preparing for a ceasefire. There is currently no time fixed for the operation. Only when we achieve complete quiet can we talk about calm.” PM Benjamin Netanyahu said, “This is just the beginning. We will hit them in a way that they would not even have thought in their wildest dreams”. Whereas, Hamas leader Haniyeh said that they will not hold back if Israel wants to escalate and they will make life hell for the Israelis.
- According to media reports, Hamas commander Basim Issa was killed in the Gaza bombing. With this, three buildings were destroyed, and Hamas security establishments were also demolished. Gaza’s Health Ministry said that so far 65 people including 16 children have lost their lives.
- According to a journalist from Al Jazeera, a TV channel, the 14-storey building was home to several media houses. While the Israeli Defense Force says the building had an office of Hamas military intelligence, it was through this building that intelligence military activities were being communicated.

Israel’s ultramodern ‘Iron Dome’ technology proves to be a boon !
Israel’s Iron Dome technology has proved to be a successful shield against Hamas’s rocket attacks. Iron Dome is a mobile all-weather air defence system developed in 2011 by Rafael Advanced Defence Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries with the US’s assistance. The system is designed to intercept and destroy missiles, short-range rockets and artillery shells fired towards Israel. Israel uses this defence system to destroy missiles aimed at its cities.
