Breaking news IDF Resumes Strikes After Hamas Ignores 'Humanitarian Ceasefire'

Israel has resumed its ground and air offensive against Hamas terrorism in Gaza, the IDF Spokesperson's Office announced Sunday morning, after Hamas fired a salvo of rockets on Israeli civilians during a "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 IDF will now resume its aerial, naval and ground activity in the Gaza Strip," an army statement said.

"Due to flagrant violations of humanitarian remission by Hamas, the IDF is now resuming offensive activities," army spokesman Peter Lerner wrote on Twitter.
