Israel continued with air strikes in Gaza on Wednesday morning, injuring several people. An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed that buildings storing munitions, linked to the Hamas movement, were the target. These latest attacks come a day after Israel said it could target Hamas’ Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in raids.
34 Palestinians have been killed in air strikes in the last week. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Gaza to meet with Haniyeh, but talks were postponed after the Israeli threat. The two are now due to meet today, to discuss the restoration of law and order, and a possible truce with Israel. President Mahmoud will also talk with officials from the Hamas and Fatah factions to try to restore calm. Internal fighting has claimed 49 lives since a unity government was formed in March.
