A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was announced early Monday morning, bringing an end to the recent round of fighting. The Israeli army lifted all restrictions for Israel’s south at 7:00 a.m., allowing schools to be opened as usual. 690 rockets were launched from Gaza to Israel in the 48 hours of fighting, and Israel responded by bombing 350 Islamic Jihad and Hamas targets. Some direct rocket strikes resulted in four dead and four wounded on the Israeli side. Palestinian authorities reported 23 dead, including two pregnant women and two infants.
The current round started following a delay in the transfer of Qatari money into Gaza.
