The Israeli army said on Thursday morning that it had pounded more than 140 targets in Gaza belonging to the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement.

The Israeli Air Force responded with more than 150 attacks on what it described as Hamas military targets.
An onlooker captured the incredible footage of Israel intercepting mod-air rocket from Gaza.

The current round of hostilities kicked off Tuesday, when Israel shelled a Hamas post and killed two snipers who were taking part in an exercise, mistakenly thinking they were shooting at Israel. Israeli media reported that army officials had later acknowledged a mistake had been made and the militants had not been firing at soldiers, though the military would not confirm that information to AFP.
Gaza has been controlled by Hamas for more than a decade, during which time it has fought three wars against Israel, most recently in 2014. That was followed by the rocket fire and then the Israeli strikes.
The attacks come as the United Nations and Egypt try to secure a deal between Israel and Hamas for a lasting truce.
Israel says it is defending its border and nearby communities and accuses Hamas of using the protests as cover for attempts to breach the fence and carry out attacks.
The majority were killed during violent protests, but others have died in airstrikes or tank fire.
The video was also shared by at least one account in Gaza as proof that Hamas should not be messed with and will hit back if attacked.
