Israeli Army Resumes Bombardment of Gaza, Killing At Least 8 Palestinians
Palestinian medical sources have reported that Israeli missiles have killed 8 Palestinians in noontime strikes on Sunday, while four more Palestinians dead of wounds suffered several days ago.
14:49 Palestinian factions reportedly agree to a new 24-hour ceasefire, starting Sunday at noon. Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri of Hamas stated that the humanitarian truce could be extended, depending on the situation.
Hamas officials said that they had negotiated with all of the resistance factions in Gaza, according to Palestinian leadership, and managed to get them to agree to a 24-hour ceasefire.
But Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told CNN that Israel would not respect the ceasefire negotiated by Hamas, saying, ‘Under these circumstances, Israel will do what it must do to defend its people.’
The Israeli Economy Minister, head of the Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, posted on his Facebook page, “Israel is in the midst of an historic operation to destroy Hamas and completely disarm it. Now, especially now, we should not remove our foot from the gas pedal. No ceasefire, no truce, no rest, no peace, no dialogue. Hamas leaders know our phone numbers – if they want to disarm, call us. Otherwise, there will be no end to this operation.”

Palestinian armed groups in Gaza fired several missiles into Israel after the initial twelve-hour truce ended, as the groups rejected any truce that does not include a full Israeli withdrawal from cities, towns and areas the army recently invaded as part of Israel’s war on Gaza.
The Israeli Ministerial Cabinet earlier approved extending the temporary truce for 24 hours, but rejected any withdrawal of the army from Gaza.
Hamas said it cannot approve a truce that allows for the continuation of Israeli strikes and military presence in Gaza, and Hamas reiterated its demand that Israel stop attacking medics and rescue teams trying to locate survivors under the rubble of their homes.
In the airstrikes, which began shortly after noon, the Israeli army fired missiles into several homes in the Sa’ayda area, east of the al-Maghazi, and al-Masdar area, east of the Central District.
The army also fired missiles into the Nusseirat refugee camp, Bani Solheila in Khan Younis, and even fired missiles into a school, where families are taking shelter in Gaza City, wounding two Palestinians.
The army fired shells into a civilian car in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, causing damage but no injuries.
Israeli missiles struck several areas in Rafah, in southern Gaza, al-Maghazi and Gaza City, and Beit Hanoun in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
