The IDF launched “Operation Shield and Arrow” on Tuesday night, targeting militants in the Gaza Strip and their infrastructure, including rocket launchers and mortars. In response, Palestinian Islamic Jihad militants fired 469 rockets at Israel on Wednesday.

As a result of Israeli strikes against the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported on Thursday that 25 people were killed, and 76 were injured.
