  • 'Hamas, Israel agree Egypt-mediated truce'

On Wednesday night and Thursday, Israeli aircraft struck more than 150 targets in Gaza and Palestinian militants fired scores of rockets including a long-range missile deep into Israel, escalating fighting despite the ongoing truce talks.

Gaza Judge Omar Nofal, who serves on Gaza's Sharia court, said on Hamas TV on August 8 that "jihad" against Israel is an individual duty.

A plume of smoke rises from the remains of a building west of Gaza City that was targeted by the Israeli Air Force in response to a rocket attack that hit southern Israel earlier in the day on August 9, 2018.

In New York, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called on that body's secretary-general and Security Council members to condemn Hamas's rocket fire against Israel.

Israel just launched multiple airstrikes destroying al-Meshal Cultural center in Gaza - a public area that hosts cultural festivals and art events.

Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip, agreed on a truce on Thursday, two Palestinian officials said, an understanding that would end an escalation in fighting that has drawn mutual threats of war.

Militants in the strip fired more than 180 rockets and mortars into Israel within 24 hours, the Israeli military said.

A pregnant Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child were killed in the Israeli attacks overnight, as was a Hamas militant, local medical officials said.

Medics reported at least four wounded taken to Israeli hospitals, including a 30-year-old Thai woman in moderate to severe condition after being injured in the Eshkol region bordering the Gaza Strip.

"We've seen reports that 180 or so rocket attacks have taken place, shot from Gaza into Israel, and we fully support Israel's right to defend itself and to take actions to prevent provocations of that nature", Nauert said.

A Hamas militant was also killed in the strikes and at least 12 others injured, the Health Ministry said. The ministry said the militant and the civilians were killed in separate incidents.

Israel's military said the five-storey building was used by Hamas's "interior security forces for military purposes".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was convening a meeting of his security Cabinet.

While some local media outlets were reporting that Muhammad succumbed to his wounds early Thursday afternoon, the Gaza Ministry of Health has maintained that he is still in critical condition and being treated in the ICU.

Reminder: Current Israeli bombardment sequence in Gaza started when the Israeli military killed two Palestinians, lied about why and later admitted to doing so just as a high level Palestinian delegation was on its way to Cairo to discuss longer term cease-fire.

Neither Greenblatt, the foreign ministry, nor the army made any mention of the killing of Inas Khimash and her daughter Bayan. It said the deal was mediated by Egypt and other regional players.

The global media will highlight the fact that Israelis can flee while the Palestinians in Gaza remained under fire. A auto parked nearby was smashed. In the absence of a deal, Israel was able to target "valuable" Hamas military targets in Gaza, the official said.

"What I can say is that we targeted by definition only military targets that were clearly used by Hamas where there was an active presence of Hamas and nothing else", he told journalists on Thursday morning.

UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov said the United Nations had engaged with Egypt in an "unprecedented effort" to avoid serious conflict, but cautioned that "the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people".

The flare-up came as Egypt continued efforts to broker a long-term cease-fire between the two sides.

Israel has killed more than 150 people since March when Palestinians began to stage protests on the border to demand an end to the blockade and the return of the Palestinians to the occupied territories.

At least 165 Palestinians have killed by Israeli fire since then.
