HAARETZ, THE JERUSALEM POST (Israel), BBC NEWS (UK)
GAZA CITY - An Israel Air Force strike hit a Palestinian rocket launching pad and two militant activity sites in the Gaza Strip on Monday, reports Haaretz.
The strike ended an Egyptian-brokered truce, which had calmed cross-border fighting since Thursday. The informal cease-fire went into effect after the worst outbreak of violence between Israel and Palestinian militants in months.
Monday’s airstrike was launched after Gaza militants fired more than 15 rockets and mortars into southern Israel overnight, said The Jerusalem Post.
One Hamas militant, belonging to the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, was killed in the raid, writes BBC News.
Residents in the Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip have been asked to stay within a 15-second distance from a secure shelter. The school day opened as scheduled across the region, said Haaretz.
