A total of 1,800 rockets were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since tensions started to escalate, 430 of which fell inside the Palestinian enclave, Israel Defense Forces’ spokesman, Jonathan Conricus, said on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Israeli military operation would continue as long as necessary.
The fighting came after weeks of rising tensions that were stoked by violent confrontations between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters at a site in Jerusalem that is holy to both Muslims and Jews.
Over this period, 1800 rockets were fired at the Israeli territory and crossed the border, while around 430 other rockets did not reach the target and exploded in the Gaza Strip.
In the last four days, 119 people were killed in airstrikes, according to the latest government data.
