Hamas Wants Ceasefire After More Than 600 Rockets Fired Into Israel

What's the sin of my children?: Infants killed in Gaza shelling

The violence reportedly resulted in the deaths of at least 25 Palestinians and four Israelis. In response, the country's military then bombed a building in the Gaza Strip from which the Hamas hackers allegedly operated.

The first reports of a possible ceasefire mediated by Egypt and the United Nations came out shortly before midnight which was supposed to take effect immediately.

"Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., accused the New York Times of "dehumanizing" Palestinians after the paper published a story on Saturday about the hundreds of rocket attacks on Israel with the headline" "Gaza militants fire 250 rockets, and Israel responds with airstrikes", the Washington Examiner reported the next day.

Palestinian officials said an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire agreement was reached with Israel on Monday to end the recent surge of violence in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel.

Now that the smoke has cleared, it appears that this small organization has emerged as the most substantial player both in Gaza in particular and in the Arab sphere in general.

In Gaza, 23 people were killed in the fighting, including militants and civilians.

After making an emergency landing at the airport, the plane's engines caught fire on the runway, Aeroflot said in a statement . When the engines touched the runway fire broke out and passengers were seen fleeing from the stricken Sukhoi Superjet.

"Over the past two days, we have hit Hamas and Islamic Jihad with great force, attacking over 350 targets and terrorist leaders and activists, and destroying terrorist infrastructure", Netanyahu said in a statement.

The Israeli military also claimed he was responsible for transferring Iranian cash to Palestinians in the enclave.

With Gaza's beleaguered population of 2 million people increasingly turning its frustrations toward Hamas, the organization has been desperate to secure an easing of Israeli restrictions, particularly as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan approached.

Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2007, after the Hamas movement took control of the Palestinian coastal territory.

Even within his own ruling Likud Party, Netanyahu faced unusual criticism for not going further to quash Gaza militants. On Sunday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad said their armed wings had targeted an Israeli army vehicle with a Kornet missile. Israeli intelligence says a misfired Palestinian rocket killed them.

Gaza's health ministry said the dead from the Israeli strikes included a 14-month-old baby and a pregnant woman, 37.

During the flare-up, Israel said it carried out its first targeted assassination in Gaza after a hiatus of several years. One man died when a rocket directly hit his house and another was killed when a factory was bombed.
