China's Xinhua news agency reported that Egypt has made a decision to open the Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip for four days, the Palestinian embassy in Cairo said in a statement Tuesday.
Trump's controversial announcement has undermined the likelihood of a reconciliation, and damaged the already fragile Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Israeli air forces conducted airstrikes on agricultural lands east of Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday at dawn.
"The Hamas terror organisation is accountable for this incident and its consequences, as well as everything happening in and from the Gaza Strip, above and below ground", the army said yesterday. Two of the soldiers are in serious condition, the army said, and were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka-University Medical Center in Beersheba.
Israeli war jets carried out a series of intensive airstrikes on Hamas and Islamic Jihad posts, training facilities, weapons storehouses, and one tunnel that was going from Gaza into Israel.
In the video, Mordechai also noted that in recent months, "15 Palestinians have been killed and 400 people have been injured" by Israeli troops quelling such protests on the border, but put the blame on Hamas for fomenting the incidents.
Conricus said the flag was placed along the border during Friday demonstrations, which have been common along the fence separating Gaza from Israel.
"The war there will be more risky and costly, and Israel believes that, by playing the time factor, things in Gaza may continue to calm", he said.
The past few days have seen increased tensions along the Israeli-Gaza border, with Israel conducting several airstrikes throughout the besieged territory, resulting in the death of two Palestinian teenagers.
