Israel escalates attacks despite agreeing to ceasefire with Gaza factions


Israel has further escalated tensions with the Gaza Strip and continued the sequence of violence by launching further rocket attacks against the beleaguered sector, despite agreeing to a recent ceasefire with resistance factions.

Yesterday, targets in the north of the Gaza Strip, including the Beit Lahiya sports club and a children's kindergarten, came under heavy missile attack from Israeli war planes. The assault left a number of adjacent civilian houses either partially or completely destroyed.

Eleven people are now known to have been killed and more than 30 injured in this latest attacks.
