Israeli forces and extremist Jews had attacked Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem (al-Quds), al Aqsa mosque and Sheikh al Jarrah neighbourhood.
They had violated the sanctity of the holy month of Ramazan, al Aqsa mosque and worshippers.
Palestinians began retaliating since then. However, Israeli regime had not repented. Instead, it chose to use disproportionate force against Palestinians.
Therefore, Palestinian resistance groups began retaliating with rockets firing.
Now, the Israeli missile attacks on Gaza go unabated with no sign yet of an end to their worst escalation since 2014.
