原文:

The fighting between Israel and Gaza's armed factions comes after Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on May 10 for a third consecutive day, firing rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear gas at Palestinian worshippers at Islam's third holiest site in the final days of the holy month of Ramadan.

Tensions have also soared over a now-delayed court ruling relating to the eviction of several Palestinian families from their homes, claimed by Israeli settlers, in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.

At least 35 people have been reported killed since hostilities between Israel and Hamas escalated on May 10. The Gaza health ministry said that 32 Palestinians were killed in Israeli air raids on the coastal territory. Israeli medics said that three people in Israel were killed in rocket attacks.

The International Committee of the Red Cross urged all sides to step back, and reminded them of the requirement in international law to try to avoid civilian casualties.

中譯:

5月10日是以色列部隊接連強襲猛攻艾格撒清真寺院區的第3天,對在神聖齋戒月最後幾天於伊斯蘭第三大聖地朝聖的巴勒斯坦信徒,發射橡膠鋼芯彈、閃光彈及催淚彈,隨後便發生以色列與加薩武裝派系的戰鬥。

緊張情勢亦因一項延宕未決的法院審理而加劇,源自以色列屯墾居民,要將東耶路撒冷占領區幾戶希克加拉區巴勒斯坦家庭,逐出其聲索地住處的案子。

自以色列與哈瑪斯的戰事於5月10日升溫以來,業經報導的至少就有35人喪生。加薩衛生部表示,以色列空襲造成沿海地區32名巴勒斯坦人死亡。以色列軍醫指出,以色列境內有3人於火箭彈攻擊中喪生。

紅十字國際委員會力勸各方退讓一步,並以國際法的要求提醒之,設法使人民免於傷亡。(第3篇/共13篇)
