HOW HAMAS REJECTED TRUCES AND BROKE CEASEFIRES — AGAIN AND AGAIN
The IDF suspended strikes for six hours. During this time, Hamas militants fired 47 rockets into Israel. Hamas also rejected a truce proposed by Egypt and accepted by Israel.
Despite a humanitarian ceasefire at the request of the United Nations, Hamas fired three mortar shells and wounded an IDF soldier on Israel’s border with Gaza. The IDF responded.
The IDF agreed on a humanitarian ceasefire in Shuja’iya at the request of the Red Cross. Hamas continued to fire from a rocket site near the Wafa hospital in Shuja’yia.
For the fourth time, the Israeli military accepted a humanitarian ceasefire with Gaza. Hamas violated the ceasefire by firing more than six rockets into Israel.
The IDF agreed to a 72-hour ceasefire. Hamas fired rockets into Israel and attacked IDF forces in Gaza. During these clashes, a soldier may have been kidnapped by the terrorist organisation.
A 72-hour ceasefire went into effect at 8am. In the last hour before the truce and just after it began, rocket barrages were fired into Israel.
Israel agreed to Egypt’s call to extend the 72hour ceasefire, but for over two hours after the fresh truce had begun, around 22 rockets were fired from Gaza.
The ceasefire talks in Cairo effectively came to an end on Monday after rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel. In response, the IDF struck terrorist targets in Gaza.
