As a response to Israeli air strikes to the Gaza Strip, Hamas fired about 60 missiles to Sderot and Ashkelon. Israeli government announced emergency situation in these towns.
The General Secretariat of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Islamic Countries will issue an address to call an urgent meeting of member-countries of the Assembly, Gunduz said.
