Three days in hell: Gaza takes stock after Israeli offensive

Residents of the Gaza Strip spent three days and nights under bombardment by Israeli forces between Tuesday and Thursday, after the Israeli army assassinated Islamic Jihad commander Bahaa Abu al-Atta on Tuesday, prompting the Palestinian resistance group to launch a barrage of rockets at Israel.

For three days, Islamic Jihad and the Israeli army exchanged fire, with the Israeli army killing at least 34 Palestinians in Gaza, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health.

These days put Gaza residents under intense pressure, stoking fears that they might be reliving the devastation of the month-long 2014 war, whose consequences are still visible across the besieged Palestinian enclave.

The government information office in Gaza reported that 48 housing units were completely or partially damaged by Israeli air strikes over the span of those three days. (MEE/Mohammed al-Hajjar)
