Israeli Airstrikes Hit Gaza, Lebanon

The Israeli military carried out airstrikes Monday in the Gaza Strip, while European Union foreign ministers met to consider calling for a humanitarian cease-fire.

Israeli aircraft also struck multiple Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, including cells the military said were preparing to launch anti-tank missiles and rockets toward Israel.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters he believes a humanitarian pause in the conflict is needed to allow support to reach people in Gaza.

His comments came a day after a second aid convoy was allowed through the Rafah border crossing into Gaza.

“The first day, 20 trucks were allowed to come in, 20,” Borrell said. “Yesterday, were about 20 more. But in normal times, in normal times without war, 100 trucks enter into Gaza every day. So it’s clear that 20 is not enough.”
