The current round of violence began on Monday, when terrorists killed a civilian working on the Israel-Egypt birder fence. Nearly three days of incessant rocket fire from the Strip followed, as Gaza terrorist fired over 100 Qassams and mortar shells at western Negev communities.

 

The IDF struck several Gaza targets in response.

The announcement followed Egyptian efforts to broker a ceasefire.
