Posted on the July 28th, 2014 under General News by admin

By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Dan Williams GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) – A fragile truce in Gaza for the Muslim Eid al-Fitr festival was fraying on Monday as Israel’s prime minister said United Nations calls for a long-term ceasefire ignored his country’s security needs. Israeli forces said they were firing only when fired upon while army engineers hunted infiltrator tunnels from the Gaza Strip’s eastern frontier. They accused Palestinians of firing 17 rockets across the border, causing no casualties. Israel has lost 43 soldiers to Gaza fighting and another three civilians have been killed by Palestinan shelling.
