Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are claiming that they have been receiving text messages and pre-recorded phone calls from the IDF that blame Hamas for the renewal of Israeli strikes following Hamas's rejection of the ceasefire. 

At 9:00 p.m. Israel agreed to an Egyptian brokered ceasefire following eight days of Operation Protective Edge which sought to end rocket fire on Gaza on Israel. On Tuesday, when Hamas continued to fire rockets on Israel in the morning and afternoon, and explicitly rejected the ceasefire, Israel resumed its strikes on the coastal territory.
