Israel says 11 Hamas targets hit in airstrikes

 

The Israeli military says its aircraft have struck a number of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to mass border protests.

 

The military says Tuesday it struck 11 "terror targets" in a Hamas military compound. Tanks targeted another two Hamas posts in the Gaza Strip.

 

The military says that protesters used 10 explosive devices and firebombs against troops and that shots were fired at soldiers positioned along the border.

While there was no breach of the border fence, the military says many protesters attempted to enter Israel.

 

Israeli fire killed 58 Palestinians in Monday's protest. On Tuesday, Palestinians mark the 70th anniversary of their uprooting during the war surrounding Israel's creation, known as their "nakba," or catastrophe
