Israel's political and military leadership are coming under heavy criticism on Friday from residents in the south and former security officials who say that their eagerness to declare an end to the Gaza operation invited Hamas to resume its rocket barrages on the western Negev just before the expiration of the 72-hour truce.

Yuval Diskin, the former director of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) who has emerged as a vocal critic of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's policies, took to Twitter on Friday, questioning the top military and civilian brass for its conduct during this past week.
