Cautious calm dominates the northern Gaza Strip after a night Zionist intense raids coused a number of casualties among Palestinian civilians.

Raids described as the most violent since the recent Israeli war on Gaza, focused on the areas of "Beit Hanoun" in the northern Gaza Strip, where Israeli forces claimed that it came in response to a rocket on a Zionist settlement.
Zionist forces launched a campaign of arrests in the regions of "Qalqiliya" and "Salfit" and "Alkhalil", which led to outbreak of clashes with Palestinian youths.

In Jerusalem, the settlers renewed incursions into the courtyards of Al Aqsa Mosque under heavy guard by Zionist forces. While solidarities with the prisoner Bilal Kayed who is in hunger strike for sixty nine  days closed the  United Nations headquarters in Ramallah because of the failure of international bodies towards the Zionist crimes against the Palestinian prisoners.
