Israel Breaches Ceasefire Again

TEHRAN (FNA)- Israel once again breached the ceasefire by carrying out airstrikes on the Rafah border crossing, claiming that it seeks to destroy new tunnels being dug by Hamas troops.



Israeli warplanes three times struck the border causing the residents to flee their homes in extreme fright.

Israeli strikes occur as the regime had killed a young Palestinian farmer on the Gaza border near Kissufim crossing.

Hamas and Israel announced their own ceasefires on January 18, ending a 22-day long war that devastated Gaza and left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead, but they have not agreed to a truce.

Hamas says it will not agree to a ceasefire that does not end Israel's blockade of Gaza and says Shalit will be released in a prisoner swap with Israel.

Israel has said it will not open the border crossings until Shalit, captured in June 2006 in a cross-border raid by a militant group including Islamic Jihad, is released by Hamas.
