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.

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.

Not to mention what to do with the info compiled.

The ceasefire doesn't provide the Gazans with the approval to get to the fence.
So you are saying the Palestinians need to keep out of rifle shot of your Israeli terrorists? Why? Can your government not control their own militants?

If the IDF militants will not respect the ceasefire than further resistance is permissible under international law.

Hamas wont be happy with an ongoing peace with Israel.
If peace becomes established then Gazans will expect them to do something constructive for them.
Their strategy will be to rebuild their military strength and begin a campaign of occasional rocket attacks initially - culminating in the next Israeli counter attack in about 4 years time - when they get the shít beaten out of them again.
And the cycle repeats itself...

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.
The IDF claim the Palestinians have been observing the ceasefire
Army: Air sirens 'false alarm', no rockets Thursday

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Rocket warning sirens that sounded in south Israel on Thursday morning were a false alarm, Israel's army said.

No rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip since 10 p.m. Wednesday, an hour after a truce deal came into effect, a military spokeswoman said.

Why would anyone approach the border fence especially after 3 warning shots being fired?

No chance of you observing a ceasefire.:)

Start a thread to throw more insults. Typical.
