Israeli forces attacked Hamas positions in Gaza after rockets fired from the Palestinian enclave hit the Jewish state, the military said early on Saturday.
Witnesses reported the sound of gunfire and stun grenades in different parts of the commercial capital Yangon during the night, while state media on Monday said security forces were keeping a presence at hospitals and universities as part of efforts to enforce the law.
Early on Thursday, police ordered dozens of chanting protesters to disperse from a busy intersection near the main university in Yangon, the country’s largest city. Students were due to gather in a different part of the city later.
Israeli forces bombed Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip overnight in retaliation for Palestinian rocket attacks, the military said on Thursday.
British budget airline easyJet on Tuesday said that full-year profit would come in at the upper end of expectations, with revenues boosted by pilot strikes at rivals British Airways and Ryanair.
The Russian strikes on Tuesday night and at dawn on Wednesday hit an area of the northwest where the boundaries of Hama, Idlib and Latakia provinces meet, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The development came after a meeting with US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and Gen. Austin Miller, commander of US troops in Afghanistan, a Taliban figure familiar with the discussions said.
Israel has bombed Gaza, run by the Hamas, almost daily since August 6, while balloons carrying fire bombs and, less frequently, rocket fire have hit Israel from Gaza.
Now that flights of Israeli bombs and Hamas rockets have stalled, it is time to take stock of what happened over the 11 days in May which have challenged world leaders and changed public perceptions of the 140-year old Palestinian/Israeli conflict.
