    Default Ceasefire Violations

    This thread is to document reported ceasefire violations in the truce between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza strip.

    The Israeli apologists invariably rewrite history to blame the Palestinians on the outbreak of hostilities, and so I thought a thread like this would serve as a useful timeline of hostile events.

    To kick it off we have this

    Gaza crisis: Palestinian 'shot dead near border'

    A Palestinian man has been shot dead by Israeli soldiers close to the Gaza border, say Palestinian officials.

    It is the first reported killing since the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel came into force on Wednesday evening.

    The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed only that it had fired "warning shots" after seeing a group walking towards the border fence.

    Earlier, Israel said it had arrested several people over a bus bomb in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

    The blast, which injured 29 people, came just hours before the ceasefire began and was the first such attack in Tel Aviv for more than six years.

    The shooting on Friday, east of Khan Younis, left another 10 people injured, said health officials in Gaza.

    Eyewitnesses said the group were farmers but the Israelis they had been marching towards the border as if staging a protest.

    It seems Netanyahu is having problems reining in his terrorist militants.

    So much for the open-border promised by the agreement.

    it is normal for the Israelis to keep a certain level of terror directed at Palestinian civilians.

    And pray tell how we do that sitting at our screens thousands of miles away? It is pretty much impossible to verify who did what to whom and when they did it.

    SAT,

    You say it will be a TIMELINE so would you include the above link in the OP, please? And put it BEFORE the link on the reported border shooting?

    Thanks.

    Truce violated by both sides? Rockets hit Israel as drones circle over Gaza — RT

    Drones flying over Gaza but not firing, but rockets being fired into Israel. Which is worse violation wise?
    In August 2012 Hamas MP and Deputy Speaker Ahmad Bahr appeared on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV and demanded all Muslims to annihilate the Jews.

    The ceasefire doesn't provide the Gazans with the approval to get to the fence.
