Israel Strikes Gaza After a Rocket Is Fired, in a Sharp Escalation of Tensions, The New York Times

Isabel Kershner reports, “Israeli fighter jets attacked targets in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, the military said, hours after a rocket fired overnight by militants in the territory struck a house in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba, a sharp escalation after months of simmering tensions along the Israel-Gaza border. The residents of the house — a woman and her three young children — were treated for shock, according to the Israeli emergency services, and the Israeli military said a second rocket fell into the sea after it was fired overnight toward the crowded coastal area of central Israel. The Israeli military said it had struck 20 targets in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas sites, but Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the other main militant group in Gaza, issued a joint statement soon after the first Israeli strikes denying responsibility for the rocket fire against Israel.It would be unusual for a smaller, rogue group to fire longer-range rockets that can reach the central coastal area and, in any case, Israeli officials said they held Hamas responsible for the attacks.”

ICC prosecutor issues warning on Bedouin village demolition, Associated Press

“The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor has issued a warning that if Israel goes ahead and destroys a Palestinian Bedouin village on the West Bank that could constitute a war crime. Israel’s Supreme Court recently rejected a final appeal against plans to demolish the village, Khan al-Ahmar. In a statement Wednesday, ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda says ‘evacuation by force now appears imminent.’ Bensouda adds that the ‘extensive destruction of property without military necessity and population transfers in an occupied territory constitute war crimes’ under the Rome Statute treaty that established the ICC.”
