Islamist movement Hamas on Sunday warned Israel against "foolishness" after an air strike in the Gaza Strip killed a Palestinian pregnant woman and her toddler.

"This shows the occupation's desire to escalate," said Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip. "We warn the occupation against continuing this foolishness."

Israel's retaliatory air strikes demolished a house in the northern area of Zeitun, killing Nur Hassan, 30, and her two-year-old daughter Rahaf, Gaza medics said, and trapping three others under the ruins.

After days of unrest in annexed east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, Gaza has been drawn into the violence since Friday, with clashes along the border leaving nine Palestinians dead, including teenagers, from Israeli fire.

The escalation in violence in the past week has led to mounting fears that Palestinian unrest was spiralling toward a wider uprising, or third intifada.

Israel and Hamas an Artificial Enmity
Do not be deceived by the claims of that artificial enmity between the Zionists and those MB/Hamas groups (the Khawaarij), for they are friends. At the end of the day it is the general Palestinian population who get targeted by these demonds, paying dearly with their lives as a result of Israel and Hamas's covert unity and devilish actions.
