Shelling continues in Gaza and Israel

[UPDATED Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012] – As Hamas continued its attacks against Israel on Tuesday with two rockets targeted at Jerusalem, Israeli and Egyptian officials signaled that a cease-fire agreement may be close.

Hamas officials claimed responsibility for the strikes, saying they used one of their new homemade M-75 rockets. As occurred last week, the rockets landed in the Gush Etzion area of the West Bank, south of Jerusalem. No damage or injuries were reported.

An Israeli airstrike Sunday killed nine members of one family, mostly women and children, marking the deadliest single attack and worst civilian tragedy since the current fighting in the Gaza Strip began last week. On its website, the military wing of Hamas said the attack on the family “will not go unpunished,” and that the group had begun firing rockets at Israel in response.
