Hamas fires rockets, Israel bombs Gaza despite talk of truce

Swedish activists sent home after being arrested by Israel

Yesterday, an IDF tank shelled a Hamas observation post along the Gaza border, which killed two terrorists, after an attack by Hamas snipers.

"The Israeli strike was conducted in response to the rockets launched from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory over the course of the evening and night", it said.

Air strikes by Israel's military on the Gaza border have killed three people including a pregnant woman and her toddler, the Gaza Health Ministry says.

On Tuesday, Israeli airstrikes killed two Hamas members in Gaza.

Two homes in Sderot were also reportedly hit by the shrapnel and several cars were damaged.

The Anadolu report did not specify at which stage of the truce the release would be carried out, nor whether or not it would involve releasing Hamas terrorists who are behind bars in Israel.

According to the IDF, approximately 70 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel.

The area where the rockets fell have been closed off by the police as bomb disposal units were called to the scene.

An Israeli minister said his government has rejected an European Union plan to link the Gaza Strip with the West Bank, according to Israeli media on Wednesday.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that as part of the deal, which was brokered by Egypt and the United Nations with input from Turkey and Qatar, Hamas and Israel would initially observe a two-week trial cease-fire.

After Israel responded with tank fire, dozens of rockets were sent toward Israeli territory on Wednesday night.

The Swedish vessel, named "Freedom for Gaza", was intercepted on August 4th and taken to Israel's port Ashdod its organizers said - the second such boat of the "Freedom Flotilla" prevented from reaching Gaza.

The flare-up came after officials on both sides had talked about potential progress in U.N and Egyptian efforts to broker a truce to end months of simmering violence.

More than 160 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces - most during weekly protests at which thousands of Palestinians have expressed their support for the declared right of Palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral homes in what is now Israel.

Israel has lost tracts of farmland and forest to fires started by kites and helium balloons laden with incendiary material which have caused fires in Israeli forests and farmlands and flown over the border by Palestinians in Gaza.
