Fatah cartoon depicts a bloody handed Netanyahu giving a dead baby called "Gaza" as a Ramadan present

Headline: “Gaza’s Ramadan”

The cartoon shows the month of Ramadan – embodied by a man with a crescent moon head living in a house with “Ramadan” written in English on the wall next to the door – opening the door to find a basket with a bloody baby in it. On the handle of the basket is a tag saying “Gaza” in English. Peeking around the corner is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dressed in a military uniform and with blood on his hand.

This apparently refers to the recent Israeli response to over 700 missiles shot by terrorists in Gaza at Israeli civilian population centers; see note below.

May 2019 Gaza rocket attacks – The Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist organizations in Gaza launched a rocket barrage on Israeli civilian population centers on May 4, 2019, firing more than 700 rockets and murdering 4 Israelis in the course of two days. Israel responded by striking terror targets; 23 Gazans, many of them terrorists, were killed during the exchange of fire. On May 6 a ceasefire agreement was reached between Israel and Hamas.
