Exchange of fire in Gaza hours after ceasefire begins
Israeli troops came under fire by a group of
Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday, only hours after the
beginning of a unilateral ceasefire declared by Israel, an Israeli army
spokeswoman said, dpa reported.
The troops had informed Israeli armoured units and air force which then shot at and hit the Palestinians, said the spokeswoman. She added she had no information about further incidences of violence.
The unilateral ceasefire declared by Israel came into effect at 00:00 GMT (2 am local time).
