Israel strikes Gaza violating ceasefire

Israel strikes Gaza violating ceasefire

At least four Palestinians have been injured after Israel reportedly shelled a residential area in Gaza Strip, thus violating fragile ceasefire.

This comes after the UN voted to upgrade the Palestinians to a ‘non-member observer state.’

The attack in East Deir Al-Balah occurred around 22:00 GMT. Reports from local media suggest it was a tank shelling attack. So far there has been no reaction from Hamas.

The shelling is the first such incident since the Egypt-brokered ceasefire ended violent conflict between Israel and Gaza on November 21.
