Jerusalem: A short-lived humanitarian truce in Gaza`s battered Shejaiya neighbourhood appeared to have collapsed Sunday as the Israeli army
accused Hamas militants of violating it and said it had "responded accordingly".
"Once more, Hamas breaches ceasefire, this time brokered by the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) for a
humanitarian hiatus. IDF responding accordingly," army spokesman Peter Lerner said on his official Twitter account in a posting
just 40 minutes into the truce.
