Why did this violence , Israel

Israel alleges that about 200 rockets were fired at night from Gaza towards Israel. Most were stopped by the Iron Dome. In response, Israel has launched a campaign to destroy the terrorist group.

The PIJ is one of the strongest terrorist groups operating in Gaza. It is believed to be backed by Iran and is headquartered in Damascus, the Syrian capital.

It has been responsible for several attacks on Israel, ranging from rocket-fire to shelling. In November 2019, a five-day war broke out between Israel and the PIJ. 34 Palestinians were killed.

While there are no reports of air strikes targeting the Hamas group so far, Hamas has not yet entered the fight. However, if the conflict is believed to be prolonged, then Hamas may also go down with the PIJ, the consequences of which can be dire.
