Israeli warplanes have carried out three attacks on the Gaza Strip following threats from Tel Aviv to cut the water and power supplies to the blockaded coastal sliver, Press TV reports.
The Israeli fighter jets targeted central and southern Gaza on Sunday. No casualties have been reported so far.
On Saturday, Israel threatened to cut the supply of water and electricity to the Gaza Strip if the Palestinian movement of Hamas and Fatah establish a unity government.
Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon claimed a Palestinian unity government "would put an end to any hope for a peace agreement" with Tel Aviv.
The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, claiming that the deadly military attacks are carried out for defensive purposes.
However, the Israeli use of disproportionate force, in violation of international law, has always been employed against largely defenseless Palestinian territories, inflicting heavy losses in life and property on the civilian population.
On 14 May 1948, the day the Mandate officially ended and the day before the bulk of the remaining British troops departed, Israel declared its independence and sovereignty, though without specifying borders. The next day, the Arab League reiterated officially their opposition to the "two-state solution" in a letter to the UN. That day, the armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq invaded the territory partitioned for the Arab state, marking the beginning of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. The nascent Israeli Defense Force repulsed the Arab League nations from part of the occupied territories, thus extending its borders beyond the original UNSCOP partition. By December 1948, Israel controlled most of the portion of Mandate Palestine west of the Jordan River. The remainder of the Mandate consisted of Jordan, the area that came to be called the West Bank (controlled by Jordan), and the Gaza Strip (controlled by Egypt). Prior to and during this conflict, 713,000 Palestinian Arabs fled their original lands to become Palestinian refugees, in part, due to an alleged promise from Arab leaders that they would be able to return when the war had been won. Many Palestinians fled from the areas that are now present-day Israel as a response to alleged massacres of Arab towns by militant Jewish organizations like the Irgun and the Stern Gang (See Deir Yassin massacre). The War came to an end with the signing of the 1949 Armistice Agreements between Israel and each of its Arab neighbours.

+ It is not true to compare Israel with the US. US is an independent state, which a democratic govt runs it. In the Israel , a bully who took over the land rules there. So , natives have the right to fight occupier back.
