Israel Violates Ceasefire Again

TEHRAN (FNA)- Israeli F-16 warplanes, in a clear violation of the ceasefire in Gaza Strip, bombed several areas in the Strip, including an empty police station and the border areas between Gaza and Egypt.



Israeli warplanes Sunday night flied over the town of Rafah and fired at least four heavy bombs at a border area between Rafah and Egypt, local residents said according to a report by press tv.

Witnesses also added that no one had been injured or killed in these attacks.

One resident said that he saw dozens of families leaving their homes earlier in the evening and moving to safer places in the northern area of the town.

In another attack, Israeli jets struck a police station twice and turned it into rubbles, but no injuries were reported as it was empty.

Hamas and Israel declared their own ceasefires following a 22-day Israeli military incursion on the Gaza Strip, but they have yet rejected to accept a truce.

Over 1,400 Palestinians were killed and more than 5500 were wounded during Israeli onslaught, most of them women and children.
