The Israeli army has launched a series of airstrikes in Gaza in the past two days against Qassam cells responsible for rocket attacks on Israel. The strikes left 11 Islamic Jihad militants dead Monday.


The IDF continued its offensive Tuesday morning, firing at Qassam-launching cells belonging to Islamic Jihad in Jabalya in northern Gaza. Four terrorist were injured.


Fayyad recently concluded a round of reportedly positive talks with Israeli leaders, and a successful fundraising campaign for the Palestinian Authority in Paris.


On Tuesday evening, the PA leader condemned Israel's "crimes against our people in the Gaza Strip and Qabatiya in the West Bank," and called on the international community to intervene immediately "in order to stop Israel's aggression against the Palestinian people."


Referring to the donors' conference in Paris that raised $7.4 billion for the PA, Fayyad called it "an unprecedented success," saying that the number of participants was also unprecedented for a conference of this nature.
