Dozens of rockets rained down on the South on Friday morning as Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil visited the territory.
Israel had agreed to cease strikes on terror targets in the Strip during Kandil's approximately three hour visit.
Ofir Gendelman, a spokesman for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote on his Twitter account that, "Hamas does not respect the Egyptian PM's visit to Gaza and violates the temporary cease fire that Israel agreed to during the visit."
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who has been in hiding since the targeted killing of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari on Wednesday, publicly welcomed Kandil on Friday and accompanied him on a visit to a hospital in Gaza.
