Palestinian/ Israeli Update 8/21/2016...Israeli Air Force, Tanks Strike Hamas Targets in Gaza After Rocket Hits Sderot
Israeli Air Force, tanks strike Hamas targets in Gaza after rocket hits Sderot
Rocket strike in Sderot
3 Palestinians injured in Israel attacks on Gaza
Rocket from Gaza land in Sderot between houses; IDF retaliate Shortly before 2:30pm local time, a Code Red alert was heard in Sderot and Sha’ar Hanegev. Shortly afterwards, a rocket from Gaza landed between two residential houses inside the town of Sderot. There were no injuries. The rocket landed between two homes, near the Sderot Train Station and Sapir College. Locals said it was a miracle that nobody was injured. In response, the IAF striked a Hamas military position in Beit Hanoun in the north Gaza Strip, and IDF tanks fired at aother Hamas infrastructure.
Palestinian health and security sources said two people were lightly wounded, AFP reported. One of them was hit by shrapnel in the face,” said Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry in Hamas-controlled Gaza. Hamas is evacuating all its outposts and security facilities in the Strip out of fear of further reprisals from Israeli. This is standard practice after rockets are fired from Gaza to Israel. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took responsibility for the rocket launch shortly after the attack. The rocket launch was apparently in response to the ongoing imprisonment of Bilal Kayed, a PFLP member who has been kept in prison through an Israeli detention order, despite being scheduled for release earlier this summer. In a press conference in Gaza on Saturday night, the group promised to carry out retribution for Kayed’s detention, though it did not specify what form that would take.

Palestinian Prisoner, Nazzal Detention Extended
Israel extended the detention, without trial, of Palestinian journalist Omar Nazzal by three months, who was due for release on Monday.
The Ramallah-based Palestinian Prisoners Club said it had been informed by Nazzal’s lawyers that the senior journalists’ union official would not now be released at the end of his current term, on August 22, New Arab reported.
“Israel is intensifying its policy of administrative detention and increasing the extensions of administrative detention,” prisoners club spokeswoman Amani Sarahneh said.
“In particular it made this choice in the case of Omar.”
His wife Marlene Rabadi posted on Facebook: “We were informed today that Omar’s administrative detention has been extended by three months.”
Nazzal was arrested on April 23 at the border between the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Jordan, from where he had been due to fly to a European Federation of Journalists gathering in Bosnia.
A military court ordered at the time that he be placed for four months in administrative detention, an Israeli measure allowing suspects to be interned for indefinite periods without charge.
He has been on hunger strike since August 4 in protest against his detention, and international organisations have called for his release.
The Palestinian journalists’ union says that another 19 Palestinian journalists and students of journalism are in Israeli prisons, one of them for more than 20 years.
