Hamas: No riots after mosque this Friday – Israel bombed 90 terror targets in Gaza
Hamas terror group announced that there will not be weekly attempts to murder Jews this Friday after mosque. This is the first time that the violent riots along the Gaza border are canceled since March 2018.
According to Arab reports, Hamas deployed its special border police to the Gaza border and has already arrested one Muslim terrorist attempting to sabotage the security fence.
The Hamas announcement came in an attempt to deescalate the situation following more than 450 rockets launched by Islamic Jihad terrorists at civilians in southern and central Israel following the targeted elimination of Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Atta.
In addition, the Hamas-run Information Ministry said that Israel bombed 90 terror infrastructures in Gaza in the last 48 hours, causing partial damage to 500 homes of terrorists and completely destroying a small number of them.
Local terrorists continue to put pressure on Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza over the lack of response to Israeli airstrikes and are expected to riot after Friday prayers.
Israeli fighter jets and drones bombed Islamic Jihad terror targets overnight, in response to four rocket attacks from Gaza which violated a ceasefire agreement that came into effect at 5:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
The IDF expanded its scope to additional terror groups in Gaza. The site of Jamal Abu Samhadana and Abu Ataya of the Brigades of Nasser Salah al-Din were also targeted during the overnight raid, according to the terrorists.
