Meanwhile, video broadcast of Israeli Channel 12 showed flames rising from what appeared a large fuel vat near the Israeli Mediterranean city of Ashkelon, south of Tel Aviv.

However, the Israeli Channel 13 TV reported that operations at a power plant in Ashkelon not interrupted.

Although international media is not covering accurately the ongoing conflict, retaliatory rockets from Gaza also caused losses to Israel which the Tel Aviv seeks to hide or understate.

However, Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh has declared a victory due to change in balance of power in favour of Palestine.

Meanwhile, Israel continued its attacks on Gaza, raising death toll to above 35 till this report.

Moreover, Israel claims to have killed several commanders of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

For the first time since 2014, Gaza based Palestinian resistance groups have rained Israel with rockets this way.

Meanwhile, Hamas had announced firing at least 130 rockets at Tel Aviv and surroundings alone.
