The Wall Street Journal, citing US officials, reported that Israel has used a bomb supplied by Washington in an attack on Jabalia in the West Bank, killing up to 100 people.
The newspaper added on Friday that Washington has supplied Israel with about 15,000 bombs and 57,000 artillery shells.
“We provided Israel with 100 BLU-109 bunker-buster bombs, each weighing 2,000 pounds,” the report quoted US officials as saying.
Meanwhile, an Israeli occupation army spokesperson said: “Hamas chose to violate the exchange agreement sponsored by Qatar and Egypt, and the Israeli army is determined to continue the war, and we will continue to work to dismantle the Hamas movement and return all the kidnapped.”
“We informed three families of the killing of their members detained in Gaza based on evidences available to us, and we published locations in the Strip where Gaza residents could seek refuge, and we attacked various Hamas sites in Gaza from the air, land and sea.”
He concluded: “In the morning hours, we attacked 200 targets in Gaza by land, sea and air, and destroyed Hamas targets. Hamas did not implement the agreement to return the kidnapped people and continues to detain 139.”
