Israel resumes fight against Hamas in Gaza after ceasefire expires
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Friday announced that Israel had resumed its fight against Hamas in Gaza after the Palestinian terrorist group violated the "operational pause" and fired toward Israeli territory. The deadline to extend the ceasefire expired at 7:00am (local time) on Friday. Israel claimed that it intercepted a rocket fired from Gaza one hour before the ceasefire expired. The military stated that sirens warning of rockets sounded again in Israeli towns near Gaza minutes before the deadline.
