Israeli aircraft have struck a major
university and other targets in the Gaza Strip as troops continued their
military campaign on the Palestinian enclave for a 26th day.
A large part of the Islamic
University in Gaza City was damaged by Saturday morning’s air strike.
Glass from broken windows and
notebooks belonging to some of the thousands of students who attended the
university were scattered around the premises. No casualties were reported in
the strike.
"The university is now in
complete ruins," Al Jazeera’s Imtiaz Tyab, reporting from the scene just
two hours after the bombardment, said.
The Israeli army said it targeted a
"weapon development" centre in the university.

In a twitter post, the military said
it struck 200 "terror targets" in 24 hours.
One of Gaza City's largest mosques,
Shifa mosque, was also badly damaged by an Israeli strike.
"I spoke to the people who were
running this mosque. It took them years to raise money to build it, and within
seconds it was just reduced to just rubble," our correspondent said.
"Over the past few days we saw
that there were no red lines [for Israel]. At least six hospitals have been
targeted, UN schools where people were sheltering, have been targeted."
The strikes came as Israel pounded
the southern Gaza town of Rafah on Saturday and killed 35 people, according to
Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Qudra.
Heavy shelling and fierce battles
were also reported along the border areas in Rafah, the site of the purported
capture of an Israeli soldier a day earlier.
Israeli forces on Saturday sealed
off the eastern Rafah area, and warned that cars on the streets would be
considered potential targets, Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford, reporting from
southern Gaza, said.
Trading blame
The Israeli army said it believed
that Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, 23, was captured by Hamas in an ambush
about an hour after an internationally brokered ceasefire took effect on Friday
Israel blamed Hamas for shattering
the agreed upon 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire.
Hamas, meanwhile, said Israeli
troops used the truce deal to storm into Rafah and kill scores of people on
Its military wing on Saturday denied
any knowledge about the fate of the missing soldier.
At least 107 Palestinians have been
killed since the ceasefire collapsed, according to the health ministry in Gaza.
This brings the death toll in
Israeli offensive on Gaza, which began on July 8, to at least 1,655
Palestinians, mostly civilians. More than 8,900 others have been reported
On the Israeli side, three civilians
have been killed by rockets launched from Gaza and at least 63 troops have died
in the fighting.
Despite the failure of several
ceasefire attempts, diplomatic efforts were still ongoing to put an end to the
A Palestinian delegation was
expected in Cairo on Saturday to discuss the terms of a durable truce.
Israel, meanwhile, said it would not be sending envoys as originally planned
and accused Hamas of misleading international mediators.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah
El-Sisi said the truce plan Egypt proposed last month provided a
"real chance" to end the Gaza conflict, stressing the need for its
speedy implementation.
"Time is decisive, we have to
take advantage of it quickly to douse the fire in the [Gaza] Strip... and to
stop the bloodshed of Palestinians," he said.
The Cairo-proposed plan was backed
by Israel, Arab governments, the US and the UN, but brushed off by Hamas.
The Palestinian group said any peace
proposal must include a demand for Israel to end the blockade on Gaza,
imposed since eight years.


Have gone through the article and is of the opinion that the world is under
the attack of Zionists aggression as Adolf Hitler surreptitiously attack the
world with the evil self-defeating military agenda to conquer the world. However,
unfortunately, he miserably failed to accomplish his mission and all his silly
caricature culminated with him committing suicide.

I strongly feel that Netanyahu an indicted worldwide reputed assassin
criminal might end up by committing suicide if after investigation is indicted
as a genocide criminal arrested and dragged to stand on the dock for trail by
ICC at Hague.

To cut a long story short must state that being a war veteran of three regular
war and having seen the valor of quite a few countries Army can state that I
have not seen such evil trained army as that of Israel Army.

It is a mercenary Army and highly motivated with evil agenda that could never
be considered to be the agenda of motivation of any regular army. From top to bottom,
all are devoid of any possession of minimum quality of humanity and character

The Israel's army is nothing but a conglomeration of cowards unfit to face opponent
in hand to hand fight. I assess it as a crowd of terrorist groups in army

Israel’s Zionist PM has smeared the image of US government internationally.
It further  confirmed overtly for the first time by the unconditional support it received from
the US congressional members to continue the operation and killing innocent civilians.

To endorse
permission and unconditional support to Israel army engaged in committal of crime against humanity by US congressional member is
in itself is the undeniable evidence to be considered the US congressional
members as abettors of the genocide case.
