On Saturday, Israel said it struck Islamic Jihad posts and militants preparing to launch rockets. Islamic Jihad said it had targeted Israel’s main international gateway, Ben Gurion Airport. Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, began firing missiles from the Gaza Strip toward Israeli cities and towns at 9 p.m. on Friday. “The enemy bears full responsibility ... We will not be lenient in responding to this aggression, which represents a declaration of war against our people,” Islamic Jihad said in a statement. A neighbor, Mariam Abu Ghanima, 56, said the Israeli military did not issue a warning before the attack, as it had done in previous rounds of violence.
