Hamas: “Israel violated ceasefire three times today”

author Friday June 20, 2008 03:54author by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC & Agencies Report post

Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, stated on Thursday that Israel violated the first day of ceasefire three times, and warned that any Israeli violation to any section of the truce will seriously endanger its success as the movement will monitor the Israeli implementation of this deal.

The Palestine Information Center, affiliated with Hamas, reported on Thursday that the Israeli army violated the truce three times and that these violations came only a few hours after the ceasefire practically started in the morning.

The Center reported that Israeli navy boats fired four shells at fishermen in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, while soldiers opened fire at farmers east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Also, eyewitnesses reported that soldiers fired at farmers in Khuza’a town, near Khan Younis, and fired at a number of houses in AL Qarara town, east of the city; no injuries were reported.

On Thursday, the Al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, issued a press release stating it is committed to the truce but warned that it will retaliate if Israel resumes its attacks.
