Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 28 /corr. Trend , U.Sadikhova / Air strikes of Israel to the Gaza Strip were committed in response to ceaseless rocket attacks by HAMAS on Israeli territories.
On Dec. 25, HAMAS launched 80 Kassam rockets to the territory of Israel, and therefore the country had to defend its population and attacked on infrastructures in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli embassy in Azerbaijan said to Trend .
As a result of Israel's attack to Gaza 238 Palestinians died, mostly local population.
"We used all measures to reach truce and a temporary agreement was achieved with HAMAS through the mediation of Egypt. However, leaders of the movements broke the agreement themselves," Israeli Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni said.
