Gaza conflict: rocket fire, air strikes resume
August 20 , 2014
After more than a week of an uneasy truce, rocket fire from Gaza and Israeli strikes resumed, as per media reports.
The wife and two-year-old daughter of Hamas’s military chief Mohammed Deif were among those killed in air strikes. Seven members of another Palestinian family in Gaza were also killed.
Israel has called back its team that was engaged in indirect talks with Palestinians in Egypt. “When Hamas breaks the ceasefire they also break the premise for the Cairo talks,” Mark Regev, spokesperson for the Israeli government, said.
