Israel-Hamas ceasefire takes effect

After 8 days, IDF ends Operation Pillar of Defense to quell rocket fire from Gaza

(YNetNews) After more than 1,500 airstrikes on terror targets in Gaza and more than 1,000 rockets launched toward Israel, Operation Pillar of Defense has come to a close: A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas went into effect at 9 pm Wednesday. In the last-minute burst of fire, Palestinian terrorists fired several bursts of rockets at south Israel, while the IDF responded with airstrikes and artillery fire on Gaza.

Rocket were fired toward Beersheba and the Bnei Shimon Regional Council just seconds before the truce took effect, and some projectiles were launched after the truce took effect.
