AFP: Israel strikes Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza despite ceasefire15 November 2019 | 04:44 | FOCUS News Agency
The ceasefire began Thursday morning following two days of deadly violence in the Gaza Strip triggered by an Israeli strike on an Islamic Jihad commander.
But Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said in a WhatsApp message to reporters that new overnight strikes were under way on Islamic Jihad, the second most powerful Palestinian militant group in Gaza after Hamas.
"The IDF is currently striking Islamic Jihad terror targets in the Gaza Strip," it said.
It came after five rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza -- also after the ceasefire came into effect -- with two of them intercepted by air defences, according to the army.
