The Israeli military said that militants in Gaza have fired more than 1,000 rockets since Monday. Hamas said that more than 550 residential and government buildings very targeted in Israeli raids. Meanwhile, Israeli defence officials accused that militants were using Gaza civilians as human shields by shooting rockets from civilian areas like populated neighbourhoods and schools.

Defense Minister of Israel Benny Gantz said that attacks would increase to bring “total, long term quiet.”
