    According to the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), at least 3,300 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip amid the recent escalation, while the Israeli military has targeted Hamas infrastructure and militants.

    Sputnik is live from the enclave, as the Israeli army clashes with Hamas militants in a fresh round of conflict that hit the region last week. The crisis flared up after Jews and Palestinians clashed in Jerusalem, following reported restrictions imposed on believers willing to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The situation further deteriorated after an Israeli court ordered the eviction of Palestinian families from homes in East Jerusalem.

    Hamas and the IDF exchanged fire across the border in the aftermath, which reportedly resulted in hundreds of deaths and over 1,300 injuries.
