After Israel’s attacks in Gaza and Lebanon, “quiet” reigns in the region

Although there was no official statement regarding a ceasefire and agreement, Israel’s attacks on Lebanon and Gaza, and rockets fired from Gaza in response, stopped as of yesterday.

According to the information received from some Palestinian sources, Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations (UN) contacted Israeli and Palestinian groups on 6-7 April to reduce tensions and ensure calm.

According to the news of the US-based “Axios” website, citing two unnamed officials from the Israeli Ministry of Defense, the ministers in the government of Benjamin Netanyahu held talks about responding to rockets fired from Lebanon.

Ministers consider that a war in Lebanon could degenerate into a regional conflict and that Tel Aviv has no interest in being dragged into a regional conflict.

The report also claimed that Israel concentrated its attacks on Hamas targets in Gaza and Lebanon in order to avoid a larger conflict with Hezbollah.

“Israel’s attack on Gaza and Aqsa once again escalates tensions”

Hamas Spokesperson Hazim Kasım said in a statement, “With the attack of the Zionist forces in Gaza, the resistance was ready to defend its people. The attitude of the resistance took place within the framework of responding to the Zionist bombardment. The size of this retaliation was determined by the attitude of the occupation forces on the ground.”

Emphasizing that this tension started after Israel’s brutal attack on the Palestinians in the Qibla Masjid within the body of Masjid al-Aqsa, Kasım said, “Israel’s attack on Gaza and Al-Aqsa Mosque once again escalates the tension in various fields.” warned.

“As long as Israel adheres to calm, we are committed”

An unnamed official from the Islamic Jihad Movement said that “as long as Israel adheres to the calm, they will also stick and they will not allow Israel to change the rules of engagement.”

Noting that the wave of tension that broke out on Friday night, April 7, came to an end, the official said, “Israel is responsible for what happened. As a matter of fact, it is he who attacked those praying in Aqsa. Everything that happened is on the basis of a violation of the Masjid al-Aqsa.”

The official noted that if Israel attacks those praying and performing Itikaf in Masjid al-Aqsa again, the tension will rise again.

How did Israel’s attacks on Gaza and Lebanon begin?

Fanatic Jewish settlers made calls to raid Masjid al-Aqsa and sacrifice sacrifices on April 3, due to the holy Passover by Jews.

Thereupon, Israeli forces intervened by using violence against a group of Palestinians who took shelter in the Qibla Masjid after the tarawih prayer in Masjid al-Aqsa on Tuesday, April 4; turned the holy sanctuary into a battlefield.

The Israeli police’s use of disproportionate force against the Muslims in Al-Aqsa Mosque with sound bombs, rubber-coated bullets and batons increased the tension in occupied East Jerusalem.

After the raid by the Israeli forces on Aqsa at midnight, the second raid after the morning prayer led to the escalation of the events.

After the Masjid al-Aqsa raids, rockets were fired from the blockaded Gaza Strip in the direction of Israel. Israeli planes also carried out airstrikes on two points in the western Gaza Strip in response to rockets.

On Thursday, April 6, Israel announced that a series of rockets were fired from Lebanon to the northern regions of the country and that warning sirens were activated in the northern regions of the country.

The Israeli side announced that in the attack from Lebanon, 34 rockets were fired, 25 of which were destroyed in the air, at least 5 of them fell on their territory, and three mortar shells were fired from Lebanon to the north of Israel in the evening.

Noting that the rocket attacks were carried out by the elements of Hamas stationed in Lebanon and holding Hamas responsible, the Israeli army noted that the Lebanese government was also responsible for firing rockets at Israel from its territory.

Thereupon, Israel announced that it launched an attack on Gaza in the early hours of Friday, April 7, and carried out a series of airstrikes on some targets in Gaza. Rocket attacks were carried out from Gaza to Israel in response to Israel’s air strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Hamas, on the other hand, blamed Israel for its aggression against Jerusalem and Gaza, and argued that it responded to the attacks.

In a statement on April 7 at noon, the Israeli army announced that life in the illegal Jewish settlements around the Gaza Strip has returned to normal after the bombing of some targets in Gaza and the rockets sent from Gaza to Israel.

Lastly, the Israeli “senior” officials, whose names were not disclosed, speaking to the Israeli Public Broadcasting Organization (KAN) last night, said that there would be no attack on Gaza and Lebanon unless fire was opened on Israel.

The report also stated that the Israeli authorities, “The security agency in Israel is determined not to further escalate tensions on all fronts, especially during Passover.”
