Palestinian Territories: Israel launched dozens of air strikes on Gaza overnight, Hamas said Monday, as Israeli Army said it will not be distracted from war after Iran’s unprecedented attack heightened fears of wider conflict.

Hamas government media office said Israeli aircraft launched “Dozens” of strikes overnight on central Gaza. Meanwhile, Israeli army opened fire on civilians who were trying to cross to north to reunite with family members, witnesses told AFP.

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned international community against deeper descent into conflict, addressing Security Council during meeting over Iran’s weekend attack on Israel.

“People of region are confronting real danger of devastating full-scale conflict. Now is time to defuse and de-escalate,” he added, calling for “Maximum restraint.”

 Iran’s UN envoy Amir Saeid Iravani meanwhile insisted Islamic republic was exercising its “Inherent right to self-defense.”

Hamas said it was sticking to its previous demands, insisting on “Permanent ceasefire” and withdrawal of Israeli Army.
