Israel attacked the Gaza Strip, hitting targets of Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad and killing several militants, including senior warlords. According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israel’s attacks in Gaza have killed 65 people.
The Gaza Strip is one of the parts of Palestine , the division of the territory of which is disputed by the participants in the long-term Arab-Israeli conflict. In 1947, the General Assembly of the United Nations has developed a plan for the partition of Palestine, which has so far not accepted the Arab side. Since the 2007 coup, the Gaza Strip has been ruled by the Islamist organization Hamas.
The process of peaceful settlement of the conflict has been suspended. The Palestinians are demanding that future borders between the two sovereign states follow the lines that existed before the 1967 Six Day War, with a possible exchange of territories. They hope to create their own state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, while East Jerusalem wants to make it the capital. Israel does not agree to this.
