Israeli jets attacked on many places in Gaza in the background of a security force raid at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
A “military location” west of the city and a site in the Nuseirat refugee camp in the middle of the Strip were both struck by Israeli aircraft.
After the nighttime Israeli police strike on worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, the raids happened early on Wednesday morning.
Four rockets launched earlier on Wednesday by Gaza in retaliation for the police assault on Al-Aqsa preceded the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

According to the Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem, the most recent Israeli airstrike is “an unsuccessful effort to stop Gaza from continuing its support [for] our people in Jerusalem and the West Bank.”
He thanked Palestinians for their “valiant resistance,” particularly those in the Gaza Strip, and said that they will continue to “exercise our right to safeguard the precious Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
Ramadan-related tensions around Al-Aqsa have in the past led to violent clashes between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas government, most recently in 2021.
12 Palestinians were injured due to the dangerous assault on the mosque by Israeli police. Rubber-tripped bullets was used by Israeli police and pummeled them. Moreover, it said that doctors were unable to enter the compound of the mosque due to Israeli soldiers.
According to The Associated Press, Palestinians captured recordings of police using clubs and weapons to assault worshippers during the raid. A lady can be heard screaming “Oh God, oh God” in one video.
