Massive rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel in Hamas’ surprise attack on Saturday, while a number of Hamas fighters from Gaza penetrated into southern Israel.
Responding to the Hamas attack, Israel launched air-strikes on targets in the Gaza Strip and also declared it was “on alert for war.”
Rockets were fired from Khan Younis with thick smoke billowing, leaving multiple traces in the air, showed a video taken by a CGTN stringer in the area.
Sirens were sounding across Israel.
Hamas has fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israel so far, according to the Palestinian militant group.
