Cartoon posted on the Facebook page of the Palestinian Information Center, an independent Palestinian news website affiliated with Hamas
The cartoon shows a woman and child walking away from Ashkelon, which is marked by a sign with the city’s logo and its name in English and Hebrew. A building with “IAI” (Israel Aerospace Industries) written on it alongside the IAI logo is seen sending signals through a transmitter to aircraft flying overhead. Transmitters are also seen sending signals from on top of residential buildings in the background.
Text on image in Hebrew: "The army is using the city [of Ashkelon] in the cruel operations against us, and therefore we will respond to this.
It is preferable to move as far away from the city as possible."
