According to BulgarianMilitary.com, citing TASS and Forbes, one of Hamas' fighting brigades, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, attempted to trigger a chemical accident in Israel by targeting the chemical plant in Nir Oz with massive missile and drone attacks.

The assault took place on May 14th (Friday). Websites affiliated with Hamas, the Palestinian political and military organization, have begun to distribute a video purporting to display the plant's rocket attack. According to other accounts, Hamas carried out the attack with Iranian-made kamikaze drones. However, no official information about whether the chemical plant was struck by Palestinian missiles exists at this time. It is impossible to verify the facts.

BulgarianMilitary.com conducted an investigation into the plant's production. The Israelis use explosive chemical toxins such as chlorine, ammonia, and others to make different chemicals. Toxic products are also stored at the factory. According to experts, if Hamas' attack had been successful, cities near the plant would have been exposed to extremely radioactive and toxic airborne chemicals, which could have caused significant harm.

Hatzerim Air Base targeted.

Hatzerim, an airbase in the country's south, is used by Israel. The airbase has been the victim of missile and drone attacks, according to a statement from the same fighter wing, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam. This knowledge is often unverifiable.

The Hamas movement has attacked this airbase for two reasons: it is home to a large number of Israeli F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, and it also houses Israeli missiles.

126 Palestinians have been killed and 950 wounded since the violence began, which escalated at a rapid pace this week.

What is going on?

The violence erupted after attention was drawn to contentious judicial and political actions in East Jerusalem's Palestinian-populated Sheikh Jara neighborhood. Initially, an Israeli court ruled that Palestinians should be evicted from the region and replaced with Israelis. A hearing on the eviction was held, but it was postponed because it never ended last Sunday.

Al-Quds and Hamas launched a brief rocket assault on Jerusalem on Monday in protest of the eviction order. For the second day in a row, Israel did not comply with the Palestinians, resulting in a retaliatory attack and missile fire between the two countries.

Israel has used fighter jets and tanks in the conflict, according to a field source, and has struck 130 targets in Gaza. The Hamas movement is linked to these objectives. These objectives, according to Israeli officials, are also linked to terrorist groups.

The international community applauds Israeli and Palestinian efforts, but as both sides have said, no compromise will be reached anytime soon.
