#AceBreakingNews – ISRAEL (Gaza Strip) – July 10 – Israel’s Operation Protective Edge entered its third day Thursday, after a night of heavy bombing by Israel Defence Forces resulted in a rising death toll in Gaza.

The IDF has launched over 780 strikes in the Strip since the operation began, and medical officials in Gaza said over 70 Palestinians have died and more than 400 others, mainly civilians, have been hospitalized (Haaretz).

More than 250 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza at the Israeli home front since Tuesday, and the shooting continued throughout much of Wednesday night, with Be’er Sheva and Ashkelon targeted.

Long-range rockets were fired at Tel Aviv twice on Thursday morning, with at least one interception confirmed by the IDF.

On Wednesday, long-range rockets were launched at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and also as far north as the Haifa region.

Since Tuesday, Iron Dome interceptor missiles have shot down over 60 rockets aimed at Israeli cities and towns, with a near-90 percent success rate, the IDF said.

Nine Israelis have suffered light injuries while running for shelter while 59 have been treated for shock.

` Israelis Desecrate the Tomb of Palestinian by Launching Price Tag Attack in City of Haifa ‘

#AceWorldNews – HAIFA – May 02 -Israelis have desecrated the tomb of a Palestinian by launching a “price tag” attack against it near the coastal city of Haifa.

The Israelis vandalized the grave at the Izzedine al-Qassam cemetery in Nesher, Israeli police said on Friday.

“Graffiti was found sprawled on and around a grave in the al-Qassam cemetery in Nesher,” north of Haifa, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.

The attackers spray-painted the words “price tag”, as well as the names of US Secretary of State John Kerry and Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who is the senior peace negotiator with the Palestinian Authority (PA), said the spokeswoman.

The United Nations has recorded “399 attacks” of this kind by Israel’s illegal settlers, which have “resulted in Palestinian injuries or property damage.”
