Operation Protective Edge: Israel, Hamas Resume Fire After 3-Day Gaza Pause

Fact checked

Israel resumed it’s relentless attack against Gaza early Friday morning, after a three day cease-fire had been agreed upon.  This comes just days after Netanyahu asked U.S. lawmakers to help block the UN from making any war crime charges against the country.

According to a report this morning issued by Reuters, “Israel launched air strikes across the Gaza Strip on Friday in response to Palestinian rockets after Egyptian-mediated talks failed to extend a 72-hour truce in a month-long war.

Egypt later called for a resumption of the ceasefire, saying only a few points remained to be agreed. Palestinian factions said they would meet Egyptian mediators later in the day but there was no sign of any imminent deal.  An Israeli government official said Israel would not negotiate with Palestinians while militants continued to unleash missiles.

As warning sirens sounded in southern Israel, the military said “Gaza terrorists” had fired more than 45 rockets on Friday morning and the “Iron Dome” interceptor system had brought down two.”

So far, there are numerous reports of figures of the affects of this war, the most accurate sourced claiming:

Since beginning of IDF operation in Gaza, we have seen:
– 3,356 Rockets Fired From Gaza
– 578 Iron Dome Interceptions
– 4,762 Targets Hit By IDF
– 1,886 Dead in Gaza
– 10,000 Wounded in Gaza
– 67 Dead in Israel
– 450 injured in Israel
– 32 Tunnels Destroyed
