Israel has also declared a state of emergency in the city of Lod as three synagogues, numerous shops, and dozens of cars were set alight as Israelis and Palestinians clashed following bomb attacks from Hamas.

Throughout Tuesday, May 11, continuous bombing by Israeli jets occurred in different parts of Gaza. Gaza’s police headquarters was also destroyed by airstrikes from Israel, in what appeared to be some of the most intense fights between Israel and Hamas since their 2014 war.
