Israel has purportedly accused Hamas of violating a cease fire agreement after Hamas fired a rocket at the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Saturday.
On Sunday, Hamas decided to call for a ceasefire, but to Israel, it was a joke.
The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, promised that Israel would do what it must to defend itself not minding the number of civilian casualty, which has been rising consistently over the last few days.
What is worse is that while both sides are yet to agree to a ceasefire through expected talks, there could be more deaths because of lack of food, or treatment materials as hospitals have ran out of medical supplies. What they have can barely dress a wound caused by a shrapnel.
Israel has ignored calls by the international community to scale back its attacks. Hamas on the other hand, has been playing up civilian casualties to its own advantage, saying Israel has been targeting civilian populations.
Early last week, baby Shayma Hussien was delivered by the doctors from her mother, whom they said was killed in an Israeli airstrike in their house. Baby Sheyma lies peacefully in her incubator. Obliviously to the rest of the world, baby Sheyma has a tough future ahead of her.
Doctors had said that her father and siblings had been killed in air strikes.
This is one of the many personal and hapless tales from the Hamas/Israeli conflict in Gaza.
More than 2 weeks now, the Palestinian population in Gaza, have borne the brunt of Israeli’s vengeance on Hamas.
Although, fighting did subside on Sunday, at the end of the Muslim Ramadan holiday, but thus; attacks has not stopped.
Earlier on Sunday, Hamas said it had endorsed a call by the United Nations for a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire, at least for the holiday.
But rocket fire could still be heard,causing Mr Netanyahu, to question the validity of the announcement.
Video shown on Israeli television showed Israeli ground forces as they travelled to Gaza’s Khirbet Khze’a neighbourhood and walked through rubble-filled streets.
They said they were in a Hamas stronghold, indicating a determination that Israel will fully carry out its threat on Hamas.
