Qassam Brigades end truce with Israel

Source: Press TV

The armed wing of Hamas, the Al-Qassam Brigades, has ended their two-year de facto ceasefire in response to two days of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza that killed at least 16 people.

“There is no longer any truce with the enemy,” the Al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement broadcast over a Hamas radio station on Saturday.

At least sixteen Palestinians have been killed and dozens have been injured over the past two days by Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, which began on Thursday, shortly after eight Israelis were killed near the Red Sea resort town of Eilat.

Medical sources said that children as young as three were among the Palestinian casualties in the attacks on Gaza.

Israeli officials have blamed a Gaza-based militant group called the Popular Resistance Committee (PRC) for Thursday's attack and have vowed a “full force” response targeting Gaza.

Israel said the attackers had infiltrated from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, although the PRC, which is not affiliated with Hamas, denied involvement in the incident.

Hamas has said that it had nothing to do with the assault and has warned against any act of aggression against the Gaza Strip.
