Israel Pounds Gaza Overnight & Separately Launched Christmas Eve Strikes On Syria

•, by Tyler Durden

"Hamas will bear the consequences for all terror emanating from Gaza," the IDF announced in a tweet, after which it said Israeli aircraft had struck a series of Hamas military facilities including a rocket manufacturing location.

The Palestinian side is disputing that Israel hit merely Hamas military outposts or weapons facilities, claiming that instead a children's hospital was among places to suffer severe damage in Gaza.

"According to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa, Israeli warplanes fired a series of missiles on Saturday in the eastern, northwestern and central parts of the Gaza Strip, including open farmland, wounding a six-year-old girl and a man in his 20s," Al Jazeera reports. "The attacks caused power cuts in the eastern parts and caused some damage to a children's hospital, a center for disabled people, and shattered the windows of some residential buildings, according to the reports."
