It’s the “No Truce” that governs Gaza skies as the apartheid Zionist entity continues to attack the besieged enclave.

A 30-year-old Palestinian was martyred in the strikes, Gaza Health Ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qedra said. A 23-year-old pregnant woman and her 18-month old child were also martyred. At least eight other civilians in Gaza were also injured, the ministry said.

In response, the Palestinian Resistance launched at least 150 rockets at “Israel” overnight.

In the hours following the exchange, sirens sounded across Southern “Israel” in settling units that surround the Gaza Strip, including Sderot. “Israel” deployed its Iron Dome system and intercepted 25 launches.

In another round of escalation, “Israel” striked what it says are Hamas targets in Occupied Gaza. By early Thursday morning, “Israel” said it struck more than 140 targets.

Warning of the imminent dangers of continued escalation, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov tweeted a statement early Thursday morning: "Our collective efforts have prevented the situation from exploding until now. If current escalation however is not contained immediately, the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people."

Hamas deputy chief Khalil Al-Hayya told Al Jazeera TV on Wednesday that United Nations and Egypt mediated talks to bring calm to the region were in "advanced stages." according to Reuters.

"We can say that actions led by the United Nations and Egypt are in advanced stages and we hope it could yield some good from them," he said. "What is required is for calm to be restored along the border between us and the Zionist enemy."

The Gaza Strip has been under an inhumane “Israeli” siege since 2007 and witnessed three wars since 2008.

Tensions have been running high near the Gaza border since March 30, which marked the start of a series of protests, dubbed “The Great March of Return,” demanding the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

Nearly 160 Palestinians have been martyred and some 17,500 others wounded in the fresh wave of violence, according to the latest figures released by the Palestinian Health Ministry.
