Israel resumes air strikes on Gaza to counter rocket attacks by Hamas
Israel has declared that it has resumed air strikes on Gaza after Hamas militants launched rockets on the former following the expiry of a three-day long truce.
The Israeli army denounced the renewed attack as unacceptable, intolerable and short-sighted, reported the BBC.
Militant group Hamas had earlier rejected an extension of the 72-hour long truce saying that they will continue to fight unless Israel lifts the economic blockade on Gaza.
According to a latest United Nations estimate, at least 1,890 Palestinians have died in the offensive that began on July 8.
