Israel Ceasefire With Gaza Fails

Strikes continue on suspected rocket crews and other targets

|

Israel's airforce has launched an attack on the home of a Hamas commander, despite a temporary halting of military action due to a visit to Gaza by Egypt's prime minister Hisham Qandil.

The strike is retaliation for rockets being fired at southern Israel.

Tel Aviv had announced that it would suspend its military operation during the visit, but there are reports of an Israeli air strike on a house in the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza.
