“In response to violation by the Hamas movement of the ceasefire conditions, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon gave the order to resume strikes against terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip,” the source told ITAR-TASS.
Formally, a five-day truce extended by a day at midnight ends at 23:00 Jerusalem Time [21:00 UTC]. No violations of the truce had been registered up until today’s launch of three rockets on Israel from Gaza. The parties to the conflict have been involved in indirect talks in Cairo designed to reach an agreement on a long-term cessation of fire.
Israeli-Palestinian relations grew sour after June 12, 2014, when three Jewish teenagers were abducted in the West Bank. Later the teenagers were found killed. Israel accused Palestinian Islamist group Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) militants of committing the crime.
On July 8, 2014, the Israel Defense Forces announced the start of the operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip against Hamas militants.
