Palestinians marched in a funeral procession in Gaza City for three Islamic Jihad members on Tuesday (May 11) after an Israeli missile exploded inside an apartment in a multi-story building.
Palestinian militants fired rocket barrages into Israel from Gaza for a second day and Israeli warplanes struck the enclave in a deepening conflict in which at least 26 people in Gaza and two in Israel have been killed.
The most serious outbreak of fighting between armed factions in Hamas Islamist-run Gaza and Israel since 2019 was triggered by clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police at Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on Monday.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would step up its strikes on Gaza in the face of the surge in rocket attacks.
