In the early hours of March 31, the Israeli military struck targets inside the Gaza Strip following the launch of 5 rockets from the besieged Palestinian region. This new escalation came only hours after a fresh wave of protests by civilians along the separation fence around the Gaza Strip. Over the last few days, the Israeli military massed large forces around the Gaza Strip in anticipation for any possible Palestinian attack. A high number of artillery and tanks was deployed around the Palestinian region for the first time in years. The Israeli government, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been negotiating with Gaza factions for days now through Egypt. While the Israeli PM is not interested in any pricy military option that could further damage his deteriorating popularity, the radical wing in the government and the Knesset may take advantage of this new attack to push for a large-scale operation. https://southfront.org/israeli-army-strikes-targets-in-gaza-following-new-rocket-attack-by-palestinian-fighters/ .................................................................................................................................................................. #gaza #war #israel #palestine #news

This is an awesome photograph of the fore courtyard of the Zwinger, a castle located in the German city of Dresden, built in Baroque style and designed by court architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann. The name Zwinger refers to the original position of the complex, between the inner and outer fortress wall. The building was mostly destroyed by British and American carpet bombing raids on Dresden in1945, but later reconstruction started, with the support of the Soviet military administration in 1945, with parts of the restored complex opened to the public in 1951; and fully restored in 1963. .................................................................................................................................................................. #culture #architecture #nature #photography #education
