Israel warned that airstrikes on Gaza would continue over the coming days as at least 28 Palestinians and three Israelis were reported killed amid rising cross-border violence sparked by clashes in Jerusalem.

A confrontation on Friday between Israeli police and Palestinian demonstrators at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem's Old City has escalated rapidly since the weekend, leaving Israelis and Palestinians alike bracing for more violence as the holy month of Ramadan comes to a close this week.

Over the last two days, Palestinian militants fired hundreds of rockets from Gaza toward Jerusalem and coastal Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv. Israel has responded with scores of airstrikes it says are targeting militants in Gaza. Israeli officials say they are preparing to expand their offensive.

Two Israelis were killed Tuesday when rockets struck two houses in the port city of Ashkelon. Another rocket hit an empty school that had been ordered closed due to the risk of strikes. A rocket barrage Tuesday night killed a third Israeli in the Tel Aviv suburb Holon.

Some rockets have been intercepted by the Israeli army's missile defense system, while others fell short and landed within Gaza.

Early Tuesday morning, Israeli warplanes and drones conducted at least 130 airstrikes over Gaza. Officials with the Israel Defense Forces said they targeted operatives from Hamas and Islamic Jihad, killing 15, including the chief of Islamic Jihad's special rocket unit.

Health officials in Gaza said 28 people have been killed in the strikes, including at least 10 children. More than 150 Palestinians in Gaza have been injured, they said.

The border between Gaza and Israel has been closed to journalists due to the rocket fire.

Israel's army chief of staff has ordered the military to prepare to widen its operation against Gaza "with no time limit." At a press briefing Tuesday, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz told reporters Israel plans to "deal a hard blow to Hamas" in the coming days, referring to the militant Palestinian group which governs Gaza.

The recent round of violence erupted after weeks of tension in Jerusalem, where Israeli police had routinely confronted Palestinian protesters, mostly around the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City. The mosque is located in an area known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, and to Jews as the Temple Mount. Anti-Arab Jewish gangs have contributed to the unrest, attacking groups of Palestinians.

Beginning Friday, Israeli police have used stun grenades, rubber-coated bullets and water cannons to disperse the growing crowds of demonstrators. The Palestinian Red Crescent emergency medical service says more than a thousand Palestinians have been injured since Friday, with hundreds hospitalized. Roughly a dozen Israeli police officers have been hurt.

The escalation in violence prompted international calls for calm and criticism from Israel's Arab neighbors.

Jordan's foreign minister Ayman Safadi was in Washington over the weekend, where he met with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Speaking to reporters ahead of their meeting, Blinken urged both sides to de-escalate.

"We're very focused on the situation in Israel, West Bank, Gaza, very deeply concerned about the rocket attacks that we're seeing now, that they need to stop, they need to stop immediately," Blinken said ahead of the meeting with Safadi.

U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan also met with Safadi during his visit to Washington, and spoke by phone with his Israeli counterpart to urge calm and denounce violence.

I do wonder if Israel’s largest newspaper will introduce a new feature called “The 1948 Project”. Which chronicles how the white-skin invaders colonized the region and stole land from the brown indigenous peoples.

It is interesting how times have changed. When I was in junior high and high school late 70’s/early 80’s, me and my friends mowed lawns, washed cars, had paper routes, and in high school we worked at gas stations, dish rooms in restaurants, flipped burgers and worked retail all for minimum wage or a bit more in some cases. Today all those menial jobs have been taken by the adult sector (mostly Latinos where I live) and now they all demand “living wages”. I don’t believe flipping burgers justifies being paid “living wages” does it?

It is a fair question.

Retarded Joe bending to Iran and taking their cock up his ass emboldens this kind of behavior.

The chimp Joe is fueling fire in the ME. No question in that.

Where does Hamas get their funding? Where do they get their rockets?

Are you forgetting about Iran shooting missiles into Iraq? Are you forgetting about Russia attacking Ukraine. There was plenty going on then too.

Who is supporting or supplying the Hamas Palestinians in Gaza with all these rockets and the ability to attack Isreal?
Is it Iran?

A small minority vote Republican and it seems it took one anti-Trump Republican, Ben Shapiro, to change to favoring him—likely due to his Israel First FP. Bill Kristol still hates Trump though.

Other than that, Christian Right/Dispensationalist Evangelicals support Israel BIGLY and that's the demographic he has to please for his coalition—not the Jewish vote. This way they can save the Jews from themselves and their atheism by hoping they will accept Jesus as their Savior.
