Islamic Jihad: Israel violated truce, we retaliated

A spokesman for the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, Abu Ahmad, said that Israel and the Palestinian factions reached a ceasefire agreement on Sunday night, but Israel violated the deal.


"The sides reached an understanding about a lull that was set to take effect yesterday at 9 pm," he said. "Israel did not abide by the agreement, bombing five targets early in the morning. The Grad rocket that was fired on Netivot was a retaliation to the Israeli violation." (Elior Levy)
