The Ceasefire That Wasn't

The farce continues-

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip has hit southern Israel, exploding near the city of Ashkelon, the Israeli military has said.

No casualties were reported from the rocket, which landed in a field.

It is one of several rocket attacks from the territory since Israel and Hamas, which controls Gaza, declared ceasefires on 18 January.

The ceasefires ended Israel's three-week offensive in Gaza, which was aimed at stopping rocket attacks on Israel.

The ceasefires, independently declared by each side, have been violated several times.

So, in short, there is no ceasefire if the shooting is continuing. But where Israel is concerned the farce of "the ceasefire that cannot be broken no matter how many rockets are fired" must go on.
