Israel started bombing Rafah, a city in Southern Gaza during Saturday as the military is looking for an officer that is believed to be captured by Hamas troops after an ambush that took place one hour after the cease-fire agreed by both sides. This is what justifies the Israel bombing reported earlier.
Ban Ki-Moon, UN chief and President Obama both accused Hamas of violating the mutually agreed cease-fire. It was also stated that the soldier needs to be released unconditionally and immediately.
In other parts of Gaza it was reported that over 150 airstrikes took place. According to the Israeli Military, a number of 200 targets were struck in the last 24 hours. This included 5 mosques as they concealed weapons and the Islamic University in Gaza City as it is used for weapons manufacturing and research.
According to the Hamas military wing, the group is not aware of a missing soldier. It is believed that he was killed in the airstrikes that followed the initial clash, which took place 1 hour before the humanitarian cease-fire.
