GAZA/JERUSALEM—Hostilities between Hamas and Israel escalated on Tuesday, raising the death toll in two days to 32 Palestinians and three people in Israel, with the terrorist group firing rockets at Tel Aviv and Israel carrying out multiple air strikes in Gaza.
A pipeline belonging to an Israeli state-owned energy company was hit in a rocket attack from Gaza late on Tuesday, an Israeli government official and an energy sector official told Reuters. Video broadcast by Channel 12 showed flames rising from what appeared to be a large fuel vat near the Israeli Mediterranean city of Ashkelon, south of Tel Aviv. Operations at a power plant in Ashkelon were not interrupted, Channel 13 TV said. From The Epoch Times.
