Cease fire

7.17.14:  Mortar shells during cease-fire

 

JERUSALEM (AP) – Israel says mortar shells have been fired from Gaza after a humanitarian cease-fire went into effect.  The Israeli army says the 3 mortar shells were fired about 2 hours after the cease-fire began.

 

Israel and Hamas both agreed on a halt in fighting for a 5-hour period to allow people in Gaza to stock up on supplies.

 

This is the 10th day of fighting and the pause in airstrikes was to allow Palestinians to restock food, water and other necessities.

 

Just hours before, Israeli military says it stopped 13 Gaza militants from carrying out an attack by sneaking through a tunnel that goes from Gaza to Israel.
