Israel and Hamas agree on truce to end Gaza flare-up: Palestinian officials

Israel and Hamas agree on truce to end Gaza flare-up: Palestinian officials

Twelve Palestinians were lightly wounded in previous strikes, and another 18 were wounded when what Palestinians said was a cultural center was hit by an Israeli airstrike, Palestinian health ministry officials said.

Israel's Defence Ministry had no immediate comment. The Israeli air force, meanwhile, pounded targets across Gaza. The rocket that hit an open area outside the major Israeli city of Beersheba caused no damage or injuries.

"He was the only one who demanded to launch a large-scale operation in the Gaza Strip".

A pregnant Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child were killed in the Israeli attacks, as was a Hamas militant.

The military said Israel was targeted with around 180 rockets and mortars from late Wednesday into Thursday.

As part of a cease-fire deal, Israel is insisting that Hamas stop sending incendiary kites and balloons over the border, Israeli and Palestinian officials say. The first signal to Gazans of the beginning of the escalation came on Thursday when the air force destroyed a building on the first floor of Hamas' internal security offices in the Palestinian enclave. Hamas denied using the facility.

Ambulance sirens echoed through the night in Gaza, where families huddled at home as powerful explosions thundered through the strip.

In nearby Israeli communities, residents were sent scrambling to bomb shelters.

Medics reported at least four wounded taken to Israeli hospitals, including a seriously injured 30-year-old Thai woman.

The West Bank only gets around three-quarters of the power its 3 million people need, imported mostly from Israel and, to a far lesser extent, Jordan. These understandings, which included many concessions to the Palestinians in return for a stable calm respected by Hamas, led to four years of quiet and prosperity in the western Negev and Gaza area, and eased the plight of Gaza residents.

The ministry said Enas was also pregnant.

Israeli Army Radio said Palestinian militants had fired a Grad missile capable of reaching Israel's heartland.

Neither Greenblatt, the foreign ministry, nor the army made any mention of the killing of Inas Khimash and her daughter Bayan.

In Gaza, crowds of Palestinians resumed protests against Israel. A vehicle parked nearby was smashed.

A spokesman for Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories said Israel had not imposed any import restrictions on solar panel technology and did not consider it to be "dual purpose". Israel's Hadashot News reported the building housed Hamas' internal security apparatus, and was intended as a signal to Hamas of Israel's intelligence capabilities.

It was one of the most serious flare-ups since the 2014 Gaza war and followed months of escalating tensions.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the worldwide community to "immediately and urgently intervene". Large turnout at the protests has also been driven by widespread desperation in Gaza, amid worsening conditions linked to the blockade. This comes less than 24 hours after Israeli airstrikes killed three Palestinians on Wednesday night.
