Israel has struck the Gaza Strip and declared a state of emergency

The press service of the army clarified that the state of emergency will operate from 16:45 on August 5 (coincides with Moscow time) to 20:00 on August 6 in a radius of up to 80 km from the Gaza Strip.

Representatives of the army clarified that the operation was called “Dawn”, it is being conducted against “terrorist targets” of the Palestinian group “Islamic Jihad” (also “Jamaat Mujahideen”, a terrorist organization banned in Russia).

“Islamic Jihad” is a militant Islamist group that wants to create an independent Palestinian Islamic state and destroy Israel in the course of jihad. It was founded in the 1970s by Sunnis from the terrorist movement “Muslim Brotherhood” (banned in Russia). The Palestinian Islamic Jihad has also been recognized as a terrorist organization in the USA, the EU, the UK, Japan, Canada, Australia and Israel.

According to Al Jazeera, the aggravation was caused by the detention in the Jenin Palestinian refugee camp of one of the leaders of the Islamic Jihad. In early August, Israel blocked roads near the Gaza Strip and sent armed reinforcements to the border with it. According to the Kipa portal, Israel’s goal is to eliminate the commander of the northern brigade of the military wing of the Islamic Jihad, Taysir al-Jabari.
