On May 4 and 5, Hamas and Islamic Jihad launch almost 700 rockets at southern Israel from Gaza, saying they were frustrated by the slow implementation of a previous ceasefire deal.

Israel said last Friday that it would also lift the ban it had imposed on Palestinian fishing vessels operating in the strip. The army struck dozens of targets in Gaza in response to the rocket fire.

Corbyn also tackled last week's escalation of violence, during raids on Gaza, killing 25 Palestinians, and four Israelis, describing it as "both distressing and risky - and a reminder of the risk that full-scale conflict can return at any time", adding that the silence of many governments, including the British, has been deafening. According to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, almost three-quarters of the Palestinians killed during Israeli retaliatory actions belonged to Palestinian terrorist organizations. It also comes as Donald Trump is about to unveil his "new deal" which would effectively hand over the rest of the Palestinian Occupied territories to Israel.

Two Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli administrative detention, without a charge or court trial, completed 41 days of their open hunger strike, on Sunday, protesting their unfair detention. The contest will draw thousands of foreign visitors to Tel Aviv. Rights organizations condemn the blockade as a punishment for Gaza's 2 million residents.
