Israel bombs Gaza after warning Hamas it risks war

Smoke and flames rise after war planes belonging to the Israeli army carried out airstrikes over Gaza City on August 18, 2020. – A rocket was fired on late August 18 from Gaza towards Israel, the army said, hours after the Jewish state warned Hamas it was risking “war” by failing to stop incendiary balloon attacks. The tensions come amid fuel shortages in the Palestinian enclave caused by an Israeli blockade, which has triggered widespread blackouts. (Photo by MAHMUD HAMS / AFP)
