Rockets fired from Gaza, cease-fire broken

Jerusalem — The Israeli military says three rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip, breaking a temporary cease-fire amid negotiations over the war between Israel and Hamas.

The military says three rockets landed in open fields on Tuesday near the southern city of Beersheba.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the Israeli military to strike Gaza "terror targets".

Israel launched the war on 8 July to stop incessant rocket fire from Gaza. Currently, Egypt is trying to broker a longer cease-fire to end the war.

In more than a month of fighting, nearly 2 000 Palestinians have been killed, the majority of them civilians. Israel lost 67 people, all but three of them soldiers.

Hows everyone going to blame Israel for this?

I don't believe this crap! I literally don't. Surely Hamas knows by now that their rockets does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to Israel. Are they really that dumb to do it again and again? Or is Israeli military just claiming it, so that they can wipe out more innocent Palestinians claiming to target 'terror sites'. I'm sorry... but you seriously can't fool people all the time. And those who fall for the joke - eish wena!

I wonder what power Israel would have without western financial backing? They would be sending rockets into fields in Gaza without aircraft, no Iron Dome, hell they would probably need to tunnel their way into Gaza.

Mxm the Israel military is lying, why do the rockets from Gaza always end up in an open field? Just making excuses to strike

Can these people stop these games, this is gone too far. how many people should die before everyone stop. I think every Gaza citizen should flea to the neigbouring country. Just a period of evacuation from Gaza and will see if Hamas will do what they doing. If a set up of refugee camps somewhere in a neutral area with full guards for terrorists. It seems like Hamas wont stop until the last person is killed by Israel. One can sympathise with Gaza but I feel that the cost of their revolution is too much. What is their plan for real. People always equate the issue in the middle east with SA Apartheid history. Our fallen heroes had a plan and had a vision. A country united and with equality. They were willing to negotiate terms. war and terror was a reaction from the violent apartheid government. The truth is Hamas has no regard for human life. If you are a leader and you believe in some revolution, you care about people. I will stand any day and say this. To any man, that it is not okay to make civilians go through what the Gaza people are going through. There is no justification. Noba ungubani ayikho le.

Hamas needs to create more news to stay on the frontpage headlines. Their ONLY effective weapon is propoganda, and to create more of it they feel the need to goad Israel into attacking.....and we know that innocent people will die when that happens, but to hamas, its the cost of the propaganda.
