Rockets fired during extended ceasefire

26 Jul, 2014

Israel’s security cabinet votes to extend a humanitarian ceasefire until 1700 Eastern Standard Time. Statement from an official:

At the request of the United Nations, the cabinet has approved a humanitarian hiatus until tomorrow (Sunday) at 24:00. The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) will act against any breach of the ceasefire

Gazan rescue workers recover 147 bodies from rubble, but Hamas resumes rocket fire before the end of an initial extension of the ceasefire period. Hamas:

Any humanitarian calm that does not include the withdrawal of occupation soldiers from the Gaza Strip and enable the people to return to their houses and to evacuate the wounded is not acceptable
