Hamas has been firing relentlessly into Israel, after Israel announced this morning that it has accepted the Egyptian brokered cease fire proposition with Hamas.
The IDF has held its fire since 9 am. Since that time, Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip have fired over 50 rockets at Israel, including one toward Haifa.
After hours of rockets falling on Israeli population centers with sirens going off 58 times and after hours of inaction, the Israel Air Force has returned to attacking terror targets in Gaza.
PM Benyamin Netanyahu warned Hamas earlier today: “If Hamas rejects the Egyptian proposal, and the rocket fire from Gaza does not cease, and that appears to be the case now, we are prepared to continue and intensify our operation to protect our people. For this we have kept full support from the responsible members of the international community.”
