On Friday, Israel said it carried out a strike against Islamic Jihad that killed its commander, who was accused of involvement in recent attacks inside Israel.
Islamic Jihad said the Israeli bombardment amounted to a ‘declaration of war’ and retaliated with more than 100 rocket attacks against Israel hours later.
The recent violence is the worst since last year’s war in Gaza, which further devastated the enclave of some 2.3 million Palestinians and forced countless Israelis to flee to safety to escape rocket fire.

Since taking over Gaza in 2007, Hamas and Israel have fought four wars, including last May.

Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, said in a statement that it had fired rockets at the city.
Air raid sirens sounded before the rockets were fired, followed shortly by explosions as occupied Jerusalem was hit for the first time in the ongoing wave of violence.
Islamic Jihad said the Israeli bombardment amounted to a ‘declaration of war’ and retaliated with more than 100 rocket attacks against Israel a few hours later.
