Israel-Gaza ceasefire ends
Report from Reuters: Three rockets fired from Gaza hit Israel on Tuesday and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the military to strike back, Israeli officials said, hours before a truce with Palestinian militants was set to expire.
Report from Aljazeera: Israel has launched air strikes on “terrorism targets” in Gaza after three rockets were fired from the territory into Israel, as attempts to agree a permanent ceasefire appeared to unravel.
The Israeli military said that the rockets landed in open areas near the town of Beer Sheeba. Sources told Al Jazeera that the rockets were fired from nearby Shujayea.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, ordered his army to attack targets in Gaza. “In response to Hamas’s violation of the truce, the prime minister and defence minister have ordered the IDF (Israeli army) to once more attack terror sites in the Gaza Strip,” a government official said.
The AP and AFP news agencies, quoting Palestinian and Israeli sources, reported that air strikes had been carried out in the north of the strip, although there were no further details.
