Rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza this evening, despite unconfirmed reports that a five-day truce had been agreed with Hamas.

Israeli Prime Minister reportedly ordered the IDF to retaliate.

The rockets, believed to have been be fired by Hamas operatives in Gaza, landed in southern Israel before a previous three-day ceasefire ended.

An IDF spokesman tweeted: “Gaza terrorists have breached the ceasefire and launched a rocket at Israel, hitting the Hof Ashkelon regional council.”

No injuries have yet been reported.

Hamas denied firing the rockets.
