Both sides have used air strikes and rocket fire in the war between Israel and Palestine. On Tuesday evening, footage on social media showed Israeli Iron Dome air defense intercepting rockets fired from Gaza. The rockets looked to be colliding with an unseen shield.
On Thursday night, after 11 days of bombings and rocket launches from Gaza, Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire negotiated by Egypt. On Friday, the cease-fire appeared to be holding, with Palestinians having joyful gatherings across the occupied territories and Israel lifting emergency restrictions in rocket-hit areas. Both sides have stated that the ceasefire will be maintained based on the current situation on the ground.
