(Tel Aviv, Israel) -- The seven-day truce between Israel and Hamas is over.
The Israeli military announced today that it has resumed combat in the Gaza Strip, claiming Hamas violated the truce and fired a rocket toward Israeli territory. Israeli airstrikes have been reported in Gaza City, and drones have been reported over southern Gaza. During the truce, Hamas released 80 hostages in exchange for 240 Palestinian prisoners.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was in Israel Thursday calling for the truce to be extended, but after their meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said they swore to "eliminate Hamas" and that nothing will prevent that from happening.
