Israel reports rocket fire from Gaza as Hamas rejects truce extension

Despite the efforts of Egyptian mediators, a resumption of Middle East hostilities looks increasingly likely after Hamas rejected any extension to the three day ceasefire which drew to a close on Friday morning. Israel had already reported rocket fire from Gaza where Palestinian factions held a rally, with several thousand supporters urging Hamas to “bomb Tel Aviv”. Mushir Al-Masri, a Hamas official, told the crowd that Israel should know that “our fighters are in the battlefield with their fingers on triggers”. Hamas’s armed wing has urged Palestinians to quit the indirect talks with Israel unless progress is made towards meeting broader demands, including calls for the lifting of the blockade of the enclave. “Indirect talks are ongoing and we still have today to secure this,” an Egyptian official said when asked whether the truce was likely to go beyond Friday’s 8 a.m. (0500 GMT) deadline. On the ground, after a month of bitter conflict, student volunteers are doing what they can to clear up rubble after Israeli air strikes on the campus of Gaza City’s Islamic University. Israel’s military claims the building had been used by Hamas for weapons research and development. Gaza officials say the war has killed 1,875 Palestinians, most of them civilians. Israel says 64 of its soldiers and three civilians have died in the fighting that began on July 8, after a surge in Palestinian rocket salvoes into Israel.

Violence has returned to the Gaza strip as the ceasefire lies in ruins

The Israeli army has resumed air strikes in Gaza after they accused Hamas of firing rockets in breach of the truce due to expire at midnight on Tuesday. Hamas’ armed wing announced they launched 40 rockets in retaliation to the Israeli attacks, including one in the direction of Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport. The Palestinians counted 35 bombardments in the coastal enclave, one of which struck a house in Gaza City, killing a woman and a two-year-old child. A third victim remains unidentified. Twenty one others were apparently wounded by the strikes. Gazans who had only just returned home after fleeing from previous fighting are once again seeking refuge. The violence has dashed hopes of a permanent truce. Israel recalled its negotiators from Cairo, reiterating that they will not negotiate under fire. The head Palestinian negotiator also announced they were leaving, saying that ‘there was an Israeli decision to make the Cairo talks fail’. In Israel the sirens rang out as Hamas threatened to send more rockets towards the airport, warning international airlines to avoid landing there. In light of the renewed hostilities, Israel has urged its citizens living within 80km of the Gazan border to reopen bomb shelters.

Gaza prepares for end of ceasefire, as talks continue in Egypt

With just a few precious hours left of a five-day ceasefire, Gazans are rushing to stock up on supplies. It comes as Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu announced that they would strike ‘with force’, should Hamas resume rocket fire when the truce expires at midnight local time. The death toll in the conflict stands at 2,016 according to the Palestinian Health Ministry. Sixty four soldiers and three civilians have died on the Israeli side. For the Palestinians the talks hinge on Israel lifting its blockade of the Gaza strip, also of concern to the international community. “It remains my conviction that we must not leave Gaza in the condition it was in before this latest escalation, otherwise the restrictions on the (Gaza) Strip, on exit and entry of goods and people will continue to fuel instability, under-development and conflict,” said Robert H. Serry, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process at the UN. Netanyahu said that any deal on the coastal enclave would have to meet the security demands of Israel. The Egyptian mediators hope for an extension to the ceasefire, with any outstanding issues to be resolved at a later date.

Renewed Gaza violence with no new truce in sight

As children were again rushed into hospital in Gaza, it was almost as if there had never been a three-day truce. The most vulnerable are again paying the biggest price for renewed fighting between Israel and Hamas. As one side blames the other for the failure of talks in Cairo, the death toll rose by at least five in Gaza on Friday, including a ten-year-old boy. Israel says Hamas fired first and uses civilians as human shields. It rejects claims its response is disproportionate. “First of all we must continue to act with force,” Justice Minister Tzipi Livni told Israel’s Channel 2 television on Friday evening. “They are firing at us and they have to get hit in return – and not in the same proportion – but to a greater extent.” Two Israelis were injured by mortars on Friday. Officials say dozens of rockets were unleashed across the border. Israel insists it won’t negotiate under fire. Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees claim they were behind the salvoes rather than Hamas. A month after the start of hostilities, the UN says more than 1,900 Palestinians, mainly civilians, have died as have 67 people on the Israeli side, almost all of them soldiers.

Fresh fighting resumes between Israel and Gaza militants

Israel says its restarted bombing “terror” sites in Gaza in response to coming under rocket fire from Palestinian militants. In a statement, the Israeli Defense Forces described it “unacceptable, intolerable and shortsighted.” “Hamas’ bad decision to breach the ceasefire will be pursued by the IDF, we will continue to strike Hamas, its infrastructure and its operatives,” said Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner. The resumption of hostilities came just hours after a three-day truce ended on Friday morning. Nonetheless, talks are continuing in Egypt between Israel and Hamas but are stuck over a deal for another ceasefire. Israel says it wants the territory to be demilitarised while Hamas says there can be no further agreement until its conditions are met, most notably border blockades lifted and the reopening of the shipping port. Gaza resident, Husam Farahat, agreed: “We should get out of this situation with dignity. There should be a complete lifting of the siege. We should get the same respect as any other people in the world, because what we are living is not a life.” According to the United Nations, at least 1,890 mostly Palestinian civilians have been killed during four weeks of fighting. Israel says 64 soldiers have been killed, along with two Israeli civilians and a Thai national. It also claims that about 900 Palestinian militants have died in the violence.

Egypt proposes ceasefire in devastating week-long conflict

Egypt has made a proposal for a ceasefire in the devastating conflict between Israel and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas that has dragged on for over a week. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has announced it has a three-step plan, starting with a 12-hour ceasefire that would take effect on Tuesday morning. The ministry says the truce would be followed by the opening of border crossings and talks in Cairo between the two sides. Israel's cabinet is reportedly set to meet to discuss the proposal. This comes on the eve of a scheduled visit to Cairo by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Tel Aviv has ignored the UN's call for a truce and is continuing its airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. Senior Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has confirmed that efforts are underway to establish a truce but says no deal has been reached yet.

Gaza truce over: Israel launches strikes in retaliation to rocket fire

Israel has carried out air strikes in Gaza after it said three rockets were fired from the coastal enclave, breaking a short-lived extension to a ceasefire agreed last night. Officials announced that ‘terror targets’ were hit after rockets were fired towards the Israeli towns of Beersheba and Netivot. “This is the eleventh ceasefire that Hamas has either rejected or violated,” said Israeli government spokesman, Mark Regev, “and it’s clear that a ceasefire has to be a two-way street.” Israel repeatedly stated it would not negotiate under fire and has withdrawn its representatives from Egypt. Mediators had hoped the ceasefire extension would buy time to find an agreement between the two sides for a permanent truce. So far there have been no claims of responsibility for the reported rocket fire by any Palestinian factions in Gaza.

Israel: No truce negotiations until Hamas holds fire

In southern Israel, Palestinian rockets have caused minor damage in communities along the Gaza border. One landed in a picnic area near a youth facility. Israel’s military claims Hamas fired at least 45 rockets on Friday morning – after the 72-hour truce expired. The government says it will not talk until the attacks stop. “The negotiations in Cairo were based on a premise. And that premise was an unconditional cessation of all violence,” said Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev. “Now when Hamas broke the ceasefire, when Hamas launched rockets and mortar shells at Israel, they broke the premise of the talks and there will not be negotiations under fire.” Egypt is continuing efforts to try and revive the truce. It says only a few sticking points remain. More meetings were planned on Friday, but there was no sign of any imminent deal.
