Israel-Palestine Ceasefire Crumbles

Gaza is burning after Israel unleashed airstrikes and tank fire only days after a ceasefire was agreed to by both sides.

At least three Palestinians were killed in the latest assault and another injured.

Israeli soldiers claim the ceasefire was broken after a Palestinian sniper injured one of their company along the border with Gaza.

These latest fatalities bring the total number of Palestinian deaths closer to 150, with more than 160,000 having sustained injuries since March 30 when the Great March of Return protests began.

Additional demonstrations took place to mark the 100th day since the protests began, which commemorate and underscore the Palestinian right to return to their homeland.

Palestinians were forcibly evicted from their homes in 1948 and have existed in a diaspora ever since, with many having lived as stateless refugees in camps for decades.

The Gaza Strip has been referred to by many as “the world’s largest open air prison.”

The United Nations has called for an investigation into the violence perpetrated by Israeli soldiers against Palestinians, particularly those living in Gaza.

Iron Triangle Press will continue to follow this story.
