New Israeli-Palestinian cease-fire apparently reached to end latest fighting

Netanyahu Orders 'Massive Strikes' Against Hamas in Gaza

Four killed in Israel, 19 in Gaza in Sunday´s escalation: officials

Israel says the smaller military group Islamic Jihad fired the rockets, but it holds Hamas, which controls Gaza, responsible.

Israel has been at the receiving end of more than 600 rockets since May 3, by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) from the Gaza Strip.

"To the Gazan people-these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery".

Republicans were harsh to condemn freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who tweeted Sunday night about this weekend's violence in Israel, the worst in a string of flare-ups since a 2014 war.

Palestine has announced the death of 25 people, including a pregnant woman and a child but Israel disputed the account on the death of the last two, suggesting they died from Palestinian fire.

Though most were intercepted by the country's defense "Iron Dome" defense system, at least four Israelis were killed and dozens of homes were destroyed in the attacks.

Benny Gantz, Israel's emerging opposition leader, also criticized Netanyahu, saying that ending the current round amounted to "another surrender to the extortion of Hamas and the terror organizations".

The violence abated before dawn, after Palestinian officials said Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations had mediated a truce, and just as Gazans were preparing to begin the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. "That, in turn, led to an onslaught of mortar and rocket fire from within Gaza, unraveling the tenuous calm".

In two weeks, Israel is also hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, the target of a Gaza rocket attack in March.

The building in Gaza City was destroyed, the statement said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned Sunday that "massive attacks against terrorist elements" would continue due to the rocket attacks coming from Gaza.

Israel carried out a series of strikes in response to rocket barrages fired from the Hamas-run territory.

While there is no detailed information on what was the aim of the Hamas cyber attack which prompted the airstrike, the commander of the IDF Cyber Division Brigadier General "D" said that it was aimed at "harming the quality of life of Israeli citizens" according to a The Times of Israel report. By 22 September 2005, Israel's withdrawal from the entire Gaza Strip to the 1967 Green Line, and the eviction of the four settlements in Samaria, was completed.

We don't know the exact target of the cyberattack, but The Times of Israel reports that its goal was to harm "the quality of life of Israeli citizens".

The Gaza healthy ministry earlier said three Palestinians, including a baby, were martyred in Israeli strikes in northern Gaza on Sunday. Israel responded by striking a Hamas military post, killing two members of Hamas' military wing.

The first two paragraphs in the Times article drawing criticism from Tlaib noted that eight Palestinians, including a "militant" and a pregnant mother with her daughter, were killed between Friday and Saturday by Israeli fire, the Examiner wrote.
