The Israeli prime minister has ordered the Israel Defense Forces to continue their attacks on Gaza, after Hamas ignored a ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
Hamas has been firing relentlessly into Israel, after Israel announced this morning that it has accepted the Egyptian brokered ceasefire proposition with Hamas.
The IDF has held its fire since 9:00 a.m. Since that time, Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip, have fired over 40 rockets at Israel, including one toward Haifa.
After hours of rockets falling on Israeli population centers with sirens going off 58 times and after hours of inaction, the Israel Air Force has resumed attacking terror targets in Gaza.
Netanyahu warned Hamas earlier today: “If Hamas rejects the Egyptian proposal and the rocket fire from Gaza does not cease, which appears to be the case now, we are prepared to continue and intensify our operation to protect our people. For this we have the full support from the responsible members of the international community.”
