Since Israeli military operations targeting Islamic Jihad positions began on Friday, a total of 41 Palestinians “have been martyred, including 15 children and four women, and 311 injured” across the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian enclave’s ministry said.
The incident was the worst in Gaza since the war broke out last year. That devastated an area home to some 2.3 million Palestinians and forced many Israelis to seek refuge.
Israel says it needs a “preliminary” operation against Islamic Jihad. The group had planned an imminent attack after several days of tension along the border with Gaza.
Islamic Jihad is allied with Hamas but often acts independently. Both are blacklisted as terrorist organizations by most of the West.
Hamas has fought four wars with Israel since seizing control of Gaza in 2007, including the conflict last May.
