Gazans say IDF strikes Shati camp, violating ceasefire

Hamas says IDF forces struck a house in the Shati refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, thereby violating Israel’s own self-declared ceasefire.

The strike, near the beachfront of Gaza City, is said to have wounded between 15 and 30 people.

There is no confirmation from the IDF about the strike.

Israel has said the ceasefire called for 10 a.m. would not include ongoing fighting in Rafah in southern Gaza, where IDF troops are continuing to hunt for tunnels that go under the border into Israel.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, in Cairo for ceasefire talks with Egyptian and other Palestinian representatives, says the alleged IDF strike “is proof the occupation lies and only announced the ceasefire for media purposes,” Israel Radio’s Gal Berger reports.
