Bombing Has Not Stopped ‘Even For A Minute’

Refaat al Areer, a Gaza resident, tells Al Jazeera of what it was spending the night under constant sound of Israeli bombardment in the besieged enclave.

“We have run out of adjectives to describe the Israeli bombing of whole blocks, targeting Palestinian families as they slept, targeting mosques, businesses and residential areas.

“The night was unprecedented. We barely slept. The situation was terrifying.

“I think this is just going to be the beginning because the bombs have not stopped for 10 hours, not even for a minute.”

Hungary continues to evacuate more people

Hungary’s foreign minister has said his country was in the process of evacuating 110 more people from Israel.

Peter Szijjarto in a Facebook post said the evacuees were currently on a flight to Budapest, bringing the total number of people it has helped leave the country to 325.

That number also includes citizens from Sweden, Germany and Austria, Szijjarto added.

Iran denies it had a role in Hamas attack

Iran says claims that it played a role in Hamas’s assault on Israel were unfounded.

“The accusations linked to an Iranian role… are based on political reasons,” foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani told reporters.

Palestinians had “the necessary capacity and will to defend their nation and recover their rights” without any help from Tehran, Kanani added.

His comments came after the Wall Street Journal reported that Iran helped Hamas plan its surprise attacks.

Israel says it regained control of all towns around Gaza fence

The Israeli army says it has regained control of all towns around the Gaza fence.

In remarks quoted by the Israeli media, army spokesperson Daniel Hagari said incidents of clashes between troops and fighters have been “isolated” in the last few hours.

He said that currently there is no fighting in the region, adding: “It is possible there are still terrorists in the area.”

Hagari said tanks, supported by combat helicopters and drones, are defending the breaches around the fence, adding that 15 out of 24 towns on the border have been evacuated.
