Palestinians report Gaza truce with Israel as violence ebbs

VIDEO Moment when al Qassam Brigades target Israeli APC by precision missile

What reportedly gave rise to the rocket attacks and violent weekend began with thousands of Palestinians protesting along the Gaza-Israel border Friday to end the blockade.

According to CBN News, Israel also lifted its restrictions for civilians living in the area. "End the violence and work toward peace".

Hamas officials said they escalated the violence to push Israel to stick to the terms it had agreed after another such flare up in March, when rocket fire had caused Netanyahu to cut short a trip to Washington.

Israel also hosts the eagerly awaited annual Eurovision song contest in Tel Aviv later this month.

The Palestinian resistance in Gaza targeted with a guided missile on Sunday an Israeli armored personnel carrier in northern Gaza.

The Islamic Jihad official said the new truce agreement was again based on Israel easing its blockade. Among the steps, he said, were the relaxing of limits on fishing and improvements in Gaza's electricity and fuel situation. "This (stand) is evident from the speech made by Prime Minister (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) when he spoke at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in NY a year ago, criticising the regime's actions against Palestine", he said in a statement here.

"The battle is not over and demands patience and discretion", he said.

In other words: The rest of the Celtics did not, which allowed Antetokounmpo to attack with more impunity. 9-12. Khris Middleton woke up and hit some 3s and then George Hill took over, putting up 11 points.

Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008 and the escalation brought them to the brink of another.

Israel says the smaller military group Islamic Jihad fired the rockets, but it holds Hamas, which controls Gaza, responsible.

Only one Democratic lawmaker so far has publicly defended Israel since the latest barrage of attacks began more than two days ago: Sen.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced that a building used by Hamas cyber operatives was bombed on Saturday as part of a joint retaliation operation with the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Unit 8200 of Military Intelligence, following a failed cyber attack against Israel.

"We see Iranian fingerprints mostly in the Gaza Strip focused on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad but not limited to... that materializes in money weapons logistic support, military training and of course political guidance".

Rockets are fired from Gaza towards Isreal, in Gaza City, May 5, 2019.

Israel, for its part, will facilitate the money transfer to Ramallah and the suitcases of cash to Gaza City (banks are prohibited from handling money transfers to Hamas because it is on the United States list of terror organizations).
