Gaza Strip fighters will not cease their campaign of airstrikes against Israel. On Saturday, Israel and Gaza Strip both agreed to a temporary ceasefire while they regrouped after a month-long aerial war. Although both sides have a significant number of casualties, the reasons for the ceasefire suggest that Gaza Strip Hamas fighters had temporarily run out of missiles.
The ceasefire was scheduled to last for 12 hours, but Israel initiated another 12-hour extension after the first 12 hours ended. However, before the ending of the second ceasefire conditions, missiles could be seen flying in the air from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.
Palestinian death tolls in Gaza Strip have risen to more than 1,000 casualties since the fighting began last March. The total of Israelis killed in the battle is less than 50, however many of the casualties were esteemed U.S. born Israeli soldiers.
Gaza Strip, West Bank is located the Middle East between Israel and Palestine, with Egypt being very close to its borders. Geographical research indicates Gaza Strip is actually in southern Israel, but Palestinian militia, especially the Hamas, have been long recognized for occupying the Gaza Strip. Gaza Strip fighters, who claim that Israel belongs to the Hamas people, has held deep remorse over Israel ever since it was annexed by the U.S. and reissued to the western Jews in a peace repatriation scheme many decades ago.
For months Gaza Strip Hamas fighters have made dozens of airstrikes,with some missiles landing in Israel’s metropolitan cities, with many local businesses and commercial industries destroyed. Earlier this month Israeli soldiers planned a ground attack on Gaza Strip with the intentions of rooting out the Hamas militants, who were firing missiles at Israel.
Gaza Strip fighters will not cease their campaign of airstrikes against Israel. Critics said that Israel’s Iron Dome, a missile interceptor designed in America, has protected the Israelis from most of the 600 missiles aimed at Israel so far. Although there have been few casualties, the destruction of Israel’s interior can be easily noticed. As the war escalates, airport officials have begun to restrict international flights into the area.
During the deadly ground combat, 60 members of the Palestinian militia were killed along with two Israeli soldiers fighting for Israel. Israeli security officials said their strategy in the ground battles was to bring the fighting directly between soldiers and lessen the Palestinian civilian casualties. The battle was fought hard for two days in the enemy’s central territories, and many of Hamas bravest fighters were killed, but the bitter conflict has not ended.
Scholars are attempting to establish authenticity of the dispute between Israel and the Gaza Strip residents. The Islamist militant group Hamas are now controlling the Gaza Strip and using the area as a military base to launch missiles into Israel.
After both sides broke their commitments in the Peace Treaty of 2012, the Palestinian President Mamoud Abbas made a statement suggesting Israel to maintain its marginalization between Palestine or risk the Hamas militant groups obtaining validation in Israel. President Abbas helped supervise a ceasefire early this year and now has been neutralized because his nonviolent solutions were so little respected.
Israelis have shown a strong resilience in the Palestinian-Israel conflict although Gaza Strip fighters will not cease their campaign of airstrikes against Israel. Although President Abbas is seen as a nonviolent diplomat by the western world, millions of residents in the Gaza Strip believe the Palestinian president has no influence on their nation.
