Israel Palestine News Highlights: Israeli strikes kill 5 more in Gaza, death toll rises to 232

Israel Palestine News Highlights: A clear majority of Republicans in the US back Israel in its military confrontation with Gaza that authorities say has claimed more than 220 Palestinian lives and killed 12 people in Israel.

Israel-Palestine Conflict Highlights: The conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants continues to escalate. US President Joe Biden and administration officials have encouraged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to wind down the bombardment of Gaza. Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza, launched the rocket attacks last week, in retaliation for Israeli police clashes with Palestinians near al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third holiest site, in East Jerusalem. According
to Israel’s defence forces, more than 2,000 rockets had been fired from Gaza into Israel since the start of the conflict, around half of them intercepted by the ‘Iron Dome’ air defence systems. Civil unrest between Jews and Arabs in Israel itself dealt a strong blow to efforts by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's opponents to unseat the Israeli leader after a series of inconclusive elections, giving rise to expectations that Israelis will go to the polls for an unprecedented fifth time in just over two years.
