Israel resumes combat in Gaza, say Hamas violated temporary truce

The temporary cease-fire between Israel and Hamas ended Friday morning as the Jewish nation blamed the terror group for “violating” the truce by launching rockets toward Israeli territory before the agreement expired.

In response, moments after the cease-fire ended, the Israeli military resumed its attack in Gaza, launching airstrikes on the Palestinian territory for the first time since the pause in fighting began on Nov. 24.

“Hamas violated the operational pause, and in addition, fired toward Israeli territory,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement at around 7:15 a.m. local time.

“The IDF has resumed combat against the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza.”

Israel’s military said it intercepted the rocket fired from Gaza shortly before the truce was set to end at 7 a.m.

Israel then launched airstrikes on the community of Abassan in southern Gaza as well as a home in Gaza City, according to the Interior Ministry in Gaza.

The sound of unrelenting explosions and dark black smoke once again filled the air over the Palestinian territory — a sign the war had resumed in full force.

Back in Israel, near the Gaza border, sirens warning of incoming rocket fire — believed to be launched by Hamas — sounded off in farming communities.

The return of fighting marked an end to a seven-day-long cease-fire between in a truce mediated by Qatar and Egypt that included a hostage-prisoner exchange.
