Two rockets fired by Palestinians in Gaza exploded near Ashkelon on Sunday, breaking the brief respite that prevailed following a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Gaza.

The rockets exploded in the Ashkelon Beach Regional Council, causing no casualties or damages.

At least seven rockets were fired at Israel on Tuesday, after Egypt brokered an agreement in which the IDF agreed to stop operations in the Gaza Strip, and Gazans said they would halt rocket attacks.

Islamic Jihad - one of the terrorist groups largely responsible for this past weekend's barrage of rocket attacks - has said it would abide by no truce unless the IDF announces it would stop what the group calls targeted assassinations.
