Israel resumed airstrikes in Gaza
Posted On 15 Jul 2014
After six hours of having accepted a “ceasefire,” the government of Israel resumed attacks on Gaza in response, it said, to the firing of dozens of rockets by Hamas militia to its territory.
Israel announced that it would stop the bombings that in eight days have claimed the lives of 191 people, most of them civilians, and caused 1,400 wounded in Gaza.
However, later the Israel Defense Forces claimed that “Hamas has fired 47 rockets since we suspended our attacks,” adding that “as a result, we resumed our operation.”
The ceasefire proposal promoted by the Egyptian government, included five points and stipulated that within two days, representatives of Israel and the armed factions in Gaza would come to Cairo to negotiate the terms of a truce.
