Rocket fired from Gaza as Israel-Hamas truce nears end

Wednesday, October 22, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

Palestinian forces operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a rocket at the southern Israel coastal city of Ashkelon on Tuesday night, just one month before a six-month ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas-ruled territory is set to expire.

The rocket landed in an open area and did not cause any injuries or damage.

The truce has been hailed as a success both in Israel and abroad, despite the fact that Palestinian terrorists have violated the ceasefire nearly 50 times since it went into effect on June 19.

Hamas officials say they have yet to decide if they want to extend the ceasefire or not, though Arab media reports that the group is not yet ready to renew full hostilities against Israel.
