Israel resumes Gaza offensive amid humanitarian truce


The IDF has resumed fighting in the Gaza Strip, saying that Hamas ignored a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire. "Following Hamas' incessant rocket fire throughout the humanitarian window, which was agreed upon for the welfare of the civilian population in Gaza, the (army) will now resume its aerial, naval and ground activity in the Gaza Strip," a statement from Israeli forces said.
Earlier, Israel extended the humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza for 24 hours, but said that it will retaliate if Hamas fires rockets from Gaza territory. But the Palestinian militant group rejected Israel's proposition.
