Terrorists ‘Violate’ Temporary Ceasefire In Gaza As Israeli Forces Come Under Attack: IDF
SOUTHERN ISRAEL - NOVEMBER 20: Israeli infantry soldiers take part in a live firing tactical advance exercise near the border in readiness for possible deployment across the border into Gaza on November 20, 2023 in Southern Israel. More than a month after Hamas's Oct. 7 attacks, the country's military has continued its sustained bombardment of the Gaza Strip and launched a ground invasion to vanquish the militant group that governs the Palestinian territory.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said on Tuesday that terrorists have violated the temporary ceasefire in Gaza after its forces came under attack in multiple locations.

“Over the last hour, 3 explosive devices were detonated adjacent to IDF troops in 2 different locations in northern Gaza, violating the framework of the operational pause,” the IDF said in a statement. “In one of the locations, terrorists also opened fire at the troops, who responded with fire.”

“A number of soldiers were lightly injured during the incidents,” the statement added. “IDF troops were located in positions as per the framework of the operational pause.”

The Jerusalem Post said that the IDF was still assessing if the attack was a signal from Hamas that they wanted to end the temporary ceasefire — which Hamas claimed was not the case — or if the attack was a test to see what they could could get away with or if it was a mistake by low-ranking terrorists.

IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi said that the IDF was ready to resume combat operations against Hamas terrorists inside Gaza immediately.

“The IDF is ready today to continue fighting,” he said. “We are using the days of respite as part of the [hostage release] outline for learning, strengthening readiness, and approving the operational plans for the continuation.”

“We are preparing to continue fighting to dismantle Hamas,” he added. “It will take time, these are complex goals, but none of there is nothing more just.”
