Israel resumes military operations in Gaza
July 27 , 2014
Israel has announced resumption of military operations in Gaza after Hamas refused to join a truce and rockets continued to be launched into Israeli territory.
In a message on Twitter, the Israeli government spokesperson said that Hamas had rejected a UN humanitarian ceasefire and was “responsible for the continuation of the fighting and the bloodshed”.
More than 1000 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have died in the fighting so far. The Israeli death toll is 46, of which 43 are members of the military.
