Israel Carries out Air Raids across Gaza


GAZA, August 14, 2014 – (WAFA) – Israel early Thursday carried out several air raids targeting several areas across the Gaza Strip in clear breach of the declared, agreed upon by both Israeli-Palestinian sides, 120-hour ceasefire, which started on Wednesday midnight.

Israeli warplanes targeted launched four strikes targeting open ground to the east of Gaza city, east of Al-Zeitoun neighborhood and As-Sudaniya to the northwest of Gaza shortly after a 120-hour ceasefire came into effect. No injuries were reported.

Palestinian and Israeli delegations agreed in their indirect Cairo-brokered talks to extend the ceasefire for another five days after they failed to reach a long-term ceasefire agreement.

The previously agreed 72-hour ceasefire was set to expire at Wednesday midnight.
