Israel erects sand barrier amid fear of Gaza missiles

The Arabic-language Ma’an news agency, citing Israeli websites, said the barrier is reportedly aimed at preventing the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas from obtaining intelligence on the Israeli forces operating in the area.   According to the report, an Israeli journalist said in a tweet posted on Monday that the barrier is a response to missiles fired from Gaza towards the occupied territories and an attempt to prevent their launch.   Israel’s latest military aggression against Gaza was met by a barrage of missiles, many of which beat the regime's multi-billion dollar missile defense shields.     Hamas said in May Tel Aviv scrambled to seek a ceasefire in the wake of its military aggression against Gaza through mediators after the Palestinian resistance increased the range of its retaliatory rockets.   Israel has launched three major wars against the besieged enclave since 2008, killing thousands of Gazans each time and shattering the impoverished territory’s already poor infrastructure.   Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007, which has caused a decline in living standards.   The besieged Gaza Strip has been witnessing weekly protests since March 30 last year. The Palestinians demand the right to return for those driven out of their homeland by Israeli aggression.   Israeli troops have killed at least 305 Palestinians since the beginning of the rallies and wounded nearly 18,000 others, according to the Gazan Health Ministry.
