Hamas Wants Ceasefire After More Than 600 Rockets Fired Into Israel

Friends and relatives mourn as they attend the funeral of 58-year-old Moshe Agadi who was killed from shrapnel wounds after his house was hit directly by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip in Ashkelon southern Israel

Smoke rises following an Israeli air strike in northern Gaza Strip October 27, 2018.

Israel's Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz ordered on Sunday that the country's only operating natural gas field, the offshore Tamar field, be closed as a precaution after violence between militants in the Gaza Strip and Israel flared up at the end of last week.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned Sunday that "massive attacks against terrorist elements" would continue due to the rocket attacks coming from Gaza.

Israeli officials did not comment on whether a truce had been reached. Many thousands of rockets and mortar shells have been fired from the Gaza Strip onto southern Israeli towns and villages, terrorizing and destabilizing the lives of hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens. It said it shelled or carried out air strikes on some 320 militant sites. It added that the United Nations, Qatar and Egypt played a major part in the agreement, reported Jerusalem Post. The latest round of violence began two days ago when an Islamic Jihad sniper fired at Israeli troops, wounding two soldiers, according to the Israeli military. We hit over 350 targets. "This (stand) is evident from the speech made by Prime Minister (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) when he spoke at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in NY previous year, criticising the regime's actions against Palestine", he said in a statement here.

"The campaign is not over and it demands patience and good judgment". We are preparing for the continuation. "The goal has been, and remains, ensuring quiet and security for the residents of the south". An airstrike hit his auto on a busy street in Gaza City on Sunday.

He said Hamas could still use "different pressuring tools" to force Israel into easing a crippling blockade of Gaza it has enforced along with Egypt.

Another online user took aim at The Guardian in London, which again framed the violence as the responsibility of the Palestinians.

In February, she insinuated in a tweet that politicians in the US were bought by AIPAC, the non-partisan group seeking to foster relations between the USA and Israel.

"This is a very tough Ramadan". As night fell, a fourth Israeli, in his 20s, according to Israeli media, was confirmed killed in the southern city of Ashdod. The military said he was responsible for transferring funds from Iran to armed factions in Gaza.

Palestinians in Gaza have been claiming that Israeli forces have overwhelmingly targeted civilian buildings, leading to fears that the situation could spiral farther out of control than any other flare up in recent months.

There was no official word from Israel on any bargaining behind the ceasefire.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called out Omar for "defending Hamas". The Palestinian health authority in Gaza said the dead also included another pregnant woman and infant, and a 12-year-old boy.
