Day 33 of Operation Protective Edge

PREAMBLE: Hamas ended a 72-hour truce on Friday morning and resumed rocket fire into Israel. By the end of the day, 57 rockets had been fired into Israel’s south.

Israel waited more than two hours, but then restarted air strikes on Hamas targets in the Strip.

Israel’s delegation left the Cairo ceasefire talks; the Palestinian delegation was reported to have unified around Hamas’s demands for the lifting of Israel’s security blockade, the opening of a seaport and other conditions. Israel’s Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said late Friday that Israel would not reward Hamas in any way for using force against Israel.
