Israel steps up shelling on Gaza, targets West Bank militants with airstrike

[ad_1]

Israel stepped up its bombing of targets on three fronts, including a rare airstrike in the West Bank, as Palestinian casualties mounted and the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip deepened.

The Israeli army struck a mosque in the West Bank city of Jenin that it said was being used by militants to plan attacks. It was one of the few airstrikes since 2006 in the West Bank, where the Israeli military has recently tended to rely on ground troops to carry out raids, which have intensified in recent years.
