End violence, work towards peace: Trump to Palestinians

The escalation in violence has claimed more lives including those of two infants

Over the weekend, sirens blared sending Israelis running to bomb shelters as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) launched more than 700 rockets at southern Israel in less than 48 hours. He said Hamas could still use "different pressuring tools" to pressure Israel into easing a crippling blockade of Gaza it has enforced along with Egypt.

After two days of violence that saw almost 700 rockets fired from the Strip and claimed lives of four Israelis and 25 Palestinians, Israeli army lifts restrictions for the South, reports Haaretz.

In response, the IDF has launched more than 300 coordinated strikes against individual terrorists in Gaza and terrorist positions, including rocket launch sites, weapons depots, terrorist compounds, and terrorist observation posts. "End the violence and work toward peace".

Israel's energy ministry said on Monday that the Tamar gas field would resume operations after the ceasefire was agreed, and that energy minister Steinitz had instructed Noble Energy, the Texas-based operator of the field, to prepare to restart pumping natural gas.

Meanwhile, Israel's Kan 11 reported that the war was conducted by Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar and Islamic Jihad leader Ziad al-Nakhala over the phone from Cairo, as guests of the Egyptian government. Palestinian health officials in Gaza said 25 people died as Israel responded with airstrikes that brought buildings in the densely populated strip tumbling down.

Israeli officials have said their priority is to confront Iran's attempts to entrench itself militarily on Israel's Syrian border, and don't want to get bogged down in Gaza. Next week, Israel is to host the popular Eurovision song contest and the backdrop of fighting would have likely overshadowed the occasions and deterred foreign tourists.

They include a 14-month-old baby and her aunt killed by what Hamas calls an Israeli strike. Then Israel will have to decide if it will be held hostage to Hamas or take more forceful action.

Palestinian witnesses said he was killed in an air strike on his vehicle.

"The ceasefire understanding will begin Monday 04:30", a Palestinian official familiar with the agreement said, according to Reuters. A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, brokered by Egypt and the United Nations, had led to relative calm around Israel's April 9 general election.

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted, "We strongly condemn the attacks in Gaza by Hamas terrorists".
