Tense calm, cease-fire follows another Hamas-Israel flare-up

Brazil's Presidential pre-candidate and conservative lawmaker Jair Bolsonaro speaks during a meeting of the

Twelve Palestinians were lightly wounded in previous strikes, and another 18 were wounded when what Palestinians said was a cultural center was hit by an Israeli airstrike, Palestinian health ministry officials said.

Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said he had no information on the woman and child killed, but noted a pregnant Israeli woman was taken to hospital Wednesday night after a rocket landed nearby.

Israeli sirens continued to blare, warning of incoming rockets, while airstrikes hit more targets in Gaza, even after Palestinian factions declared that the round of violence was "over".

Abu Mujahed, spokesman of the Popular Resistance Committee, a smaller faction in Gaza, said on his Facebook page: "Upon Egyptian and worldwide efforts, a ceasefire between Palestinian resistance began conditional on the commitment of the occupation".

The demand Israel fully opens the Keren Shalom border crossing has nothing to do with Hamas' desire to improve the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza strip but everything with rampant corruption within the top of the terror organization.

Nearly 200 rockets and mortar shells were fired from within Gaza by Hamas and other Palestinian movements at towns and villages in Israel, provoking a similar number of attacks by the Israeli Air Force.

Medics reported at least four wounded taken to Israeli hospitals, including a 30-year-old Thai woman in moderate to severe condition after being injured in the Eshkol region bordering the Gaza Strip.

Gaza militants halted fire Thursday after targeting Israel with some 180 rockets and mortars, provoking Israeli strikes across the enclave that killed three Palestinians, including a toddler, in another severe flare-up of violence.

College hoops coach threw punch killing NYC tourist, police say
According to CBS News New York , the blow was so hard, Szabo fell backwards and hit his head on the concrete. After he punched Szabo, police say Jones got into an SUV and drove away leaving the man on the pavement.

Before the Beersheba incident, Israeli officials said Netanyahu was due to hold the security cabinet session later in the day after consultations with security officials.

The protests are calling for an end to the decade-long Israeli blockade of Gaza and the return of Palestinian refugees to their ancestral homes inside Israel, which they fled or were expelled from during the war surrounding Israel's creation in 1948. Those have hit a stumbling block as Hamas is insisting that the release include all prisoners who were part of a 2011 prisoner exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit but have since been rearrested, according to Palestinian officials, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the talks.

"Everyday life in besieged Gaza is shaped by Israeli policy", IMEU added, posting a video compilation that captures the living conditions of millions of the almost two million people living in the occupied Gaza Strip. The military says they targeted more than 150 Hamas militant targets in the Gaza strip.

Weekly clashes at the Israel-Gaza border have kept tensions high for months. "I am sure the residents of the Gaza border communities are strong and we call on them to continue to listen to the instructions of the Home Front Command", Head of the Southern Command Maj.

"If current escalation, however, is not contained immediately, the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people".

The Israeli military said the building served as a Palestinian military installation.

Israel's latest attack on Gaza was characterized as the largest escalation since 2014, when Israel killed more than 2,000 Palestinians in a seven-week military operation. An Israeli soldier was killed by a Gaza sniper during this same period. This comes less than 24 hours after Israeli airstrikes killed three Palestinians on Wednesday night.
