The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) deployed additional hardware to the border with Gaza, as footage filmed in an open area south of Ashkelon on Tuesday shows.

The move comes as tensions between Israeli forces and fighters in Gaza escalated after a rocket allegedly fired by Hamas hit a house in Mishmeret, a town 30km (19mi) north of Tel Aviv on Monday morning.

In response to the attack, Israel launched an operation striking Hamas targets throughout Gaza, with around ten rockets being reportedly fired back from northern Gaza towards Israel on late Monday.

“Authority” to build up a joint operation while Israel’s very interest is to finish off both Hamas and PA/PLO and send Fakestinians either back to their country of origin or anywhere else.
