 The News Cover: There is a war-like situation between Israel and Palestine at the moment. The bloody conflict is said to have begun about a month ago. In the area of Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem, there are 70 Palestinian homes. An Israeli court ordered that these 70 Palestinians will soon be evicted to make room for Jewish people to reside in the area. According to the court, Palestinians live on land that was owned by Jews since 1948. This is why the Palestinians will be evicted. Palestinians refused to accept this and there were violent clashes between them and Israeli police. 

After this, On May 7 after breaking their Ramadan fast in the evening many Palestinians went to offer prayers at the Al Aqsa Mosque in eastern Jerusalem. However, suddenly for some unknown reason, there were clashes between the Israeli police and Palestinians. Some Palestinians were killed in this violent clash, and after this, violence has erupted in Tel Aviv and other cities of Israel. Hamas is a terrorist organization of the Palestinian people. and they are extremely agitated. Their main objective is to take back East Jerusalem. Hamas believes that East Jerusalem is the capital of the future Palestinian nation and the land was wrongfully acquired by Israel. 

This dispute between the two has been going on for a long time now. But this time the conditions have gone out of control. Hamas militants fired rockets at Israeli cities like Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, and Holon on 11th May. Officials sounded sirens that echoed all over the cities to warn people about the attacks. Amidst the loud sirens, people came out of their homes and ran towards safety. Some people were seen running towards an underpass to seek shelter. These rockets fired by the Hamas militants are so dangerous that even a 20-story Israeli building can be destroyed in the blink of an eye. 

If these rockets had fallen in different cities of Israel, it would have caused massive destruction and killed hundreds of people, but that did not happen. In various parts of Israel, there is a device called the 'Iron Dome'. When an enemy rocket is fired, the device intercepts & destroys the rocket. Leaving one or two rockets, every rocket was destroyed by the Iron Dome. Israel has also responded to the rocket attack of Hamas and has carried out airstrikes in Gaza. In this airstrike, a 13-story building was blown up by Israel.
