Israel resumes airstrikes as ceasefire fails

Kolkata/ Srinagar/ Gaza, July 16 (ANI): Israel resumed airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, six hours after agreeing to an Egyptian-proposed truce that failed to halt Hamas rocket attacks. For the first time in more than a week of fighting, an Israeli civilian was killed by a rocket fired from the Gaza strip. Hamas has claimed responsibility for launching the short-range rocket. The Israeli military says around 80 rockets have been fired at Israel since the Hamas armed wing rejected a ceasefire just hours ago. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that they'll intensify their offensive. The continuous killings have claimed more than 200 lives in the ongoing offensive. Meanwhile, Muslims across India staged a massive protest against the killing of innocent Palestine Muslims by the Israel military forces in Gaza. Members of Human Rights Protection Association (HRPA) organised a protest in front of Gandhi statue in Kolkata against the Gaza assault. In Kashmir, hundreds of slogan-shouting students from various educational institutions staged a protest in summer capital, Srinagar, to express solidarity. Jul 16, 2014
