Israelis call for peaceful solution to Iran-Israel tension

Israelis voiced opposition to military retaliation against Iran amid escalation of tensions between the two countries and beyond, and called for peaceful solution during interviews with China Central Television.

Iran and allied armed groups launched coordinated drone and missile strikes on Israel late night on April 13 in retaliation for a deadly Israeli assault on the Iranian consulate in Syria on April 1.

On Friday, Israel allegedly struck sites near the city of Isfahan in central Iran, in what appeared to be its military response to Iran's attack.

So far, Israel has not officially acknowledged the strikes on Isfahan, while Iran has not publicly accused Israel of carrying out them.

During the interviews, Israelis voiced concerns over the recent Iran-Israel tension and hoped for a peaceful solution.

"I think we have to wait and to see what will come," said Mitia, an Israeli resident.

"We are very worried about the situation, and we actually don't know what the solution is. I hope it's going to be peace. I mean, nobody is going away from this area. We are going to be here together. And I hope we find some kind of solution to the conflict," said Yuri, another Israeli resident.

Some Israelis also noted the potential spillover effect of the military escalation in the region.

"I think that the long-term escalation, I hope it doesn't escalate to proportions that are very devastating and maybe worldly problems. But I do think that it has been a long time coming, this conflict," said Saul, an Israeli resident.

The Palestinian death toll from the ongoing Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has risen to 35,647, health authorities in the Palestinian enclave said in a press statement on Tuesday.

Over the past 24 hours, the Israeli army killed 85 Palestinians and wounded 200 others, bringing the total death toll to 35,647 and injuries to 79,852 since the latest round of Palestinian-Israeli conflict broke out on October 7, 2023.

The health authorities also said that many casualties remain buried under the rubble, making it difficult for medical emergency and civil defense personnel to carry out rescue operations.

The Israeli army said in a statement that drones and fighter aircraft bombed nearly 70 "terrorist targets" in the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours, including military buildings, weapons depots, warehouses, rocket launchers, surveillance units, and other military infrastructure.

Israeli forces killed a number of militants in the Jabalia area of the northern Gaza Strip, including a "terrorist group" that was shooting at soldiers, read the statement.

It added that Israeli forces were continuing their operations in the southernmost Gazan city of Rafah, where a drone killed a "terrorist" who was firing mortar shells at Israeli soldiers.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Tuesday that the Israeli military and Military Intelligence Directorate launched a joint military operation in the West Bank city of Jenin earlier Tuesday.

According to information from Israeli intelligence agencies, Palestinian armed personnel were active in the area. During the operation, the Israeli military engaged in firefights with the Palestinian armed personnel and destroyed a significant amount of infrastructure.

The Palestinian health ministry issued a statement on Tuesday, saying that on that day, the Israeli military killed seven Palestinians and injured 12 others in Jenin and the nearby refugee camp. Two of the injured are in serious condition.
