Gaza under fire 

One more Gazan has been killed and another wounded as Israel keeps pounding the besieged Palestinian territory, using its warplanes and artillery units. The latest fatality occurred in the city of Jabalia. Earlier the regime’s tanks shelled a Palestinian government building and a factory. Warplanes also fired dozens of missiles overnight into different parts of the densely-populated Palestinian territory, causing deaths and devastation. At least 198 Gazans, including 58 children and 34 women, have been killed and nearly 1,300 injured since Israel began pounding Gaza last Monday. Forty-two Palestinians were killed on Sunday alone, the worst daily toll so far. The UN chief has described the escalation as "utterly appalling." Amnesty International has urged the International Criminal Court to investigate Israel’s attacks on a media and residential towers as well as a refugee camp as war crimes.

Palestinian resistance

Palestinian resistance groups have launched rocket attacks in retaliation for Israel’s relentless raids on the Gaza Strip. The Islamic Jihad Movement says its military wing, al-Quds Brigades, has fired volleys of rockets at the cities of Sderot and Netivot. According to the group, the rocket launch was a response to Israel’s massive bombardment of Gaza on Sunday. Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, also says it has targeted Ashkelon with a barrage of projectiles. The Israeli military says resistance fighters in Gaza have fired some 3,000 rockets toward the Israelis occupied territories since last Monday. The retaliatory attacks have so far left ten Israelis dead and hundreds injured.

JCPOA revival talks 

Iran says there will be no agreement in the Vienna talks to revive the 2015 nuclear deal unless there is a consensus on all the issues. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran and the remaining parties to the landmark deal are continuing their technical negotiations. He said the Islamic Republic is not seeking an agreement that is not according to its policies and executive instructions. Khatibzadeh noted that Iran will give no access beyond the safeguards agreement to the International Atomic Energy Agency. Tehran has time and again said Washington has to take the first step towards reviving the nuclear deal by unconditionally removing all the sanctions in a verifiable manner. The US withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018 and reinstated sanctions on the country.
