In Gaza, militant groups identified eight fighters killed in Israeli strikes, while medical officials said that nine civilians also died, including a couple and their baby daughter. "End the violence and work toward peace".

While the rest of the world is condemning the 600 rockets that Hamas and PIJ launched against Israeli innocent population, the Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib, who understands the situation in Palestine better than anyone else, explains how we all got this wrong.

"Hamas is responsible not only for its attacks against Israel, but also for the Islamic Jihad's attacks, and it is paying a very heavy price for it", Netanyahu said.

IDF's attack on the Hamas cyber operations center came during intensive fire exchanges between Israel and the Palestinians, which led to the exchange of roughly 900 rockets and, eventually, with an Egyptian-mediated cease-fire that began Monday 4:30 A.M.

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan is beginning, during which Israel had planned to ease travel restrictions on Palestinians, The New York Times reports. "The ceasefire agreement was reached on condition that the occupation implements the previous understandings to lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip", he said.

Still, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement indicating that the battle was not over. Israel said one of the buildings included Hamas military intelligence and security offices.

The bout of violence was sparked on Friday after militants shot and injured two Israeli soldiers, as NPR's Vanessa Romo reported: "The attack prompted swift military retaliation, which resulted in the deaths of two militants". Israel says four of its civilians were killed. Four Israelis were killed and four were wounded as rockets fell on the south of Israel. Palestinian militant factions said they were retaliating in an "unprecedented manner" after residential buildings were hit, and threatened to expand the range of their rockets if the "aggression" continued.

It was the deadliest round of fighting since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, and the Israeli civilian casualties were the first from rocket fire since then.

The Gazan ministry reported late on Sunday that another four-month-old baby was among those killed in Israeli strikes in the northern Gaza Strip. On Sunday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad said their armed wings had targeted an Israeli army vehicle with a Kornet missile.

Mr Conricus said a Kornet missile had hit a vehicle and killed an Israeli civilian.

Israeli officials did not comment on whether a truce had been reached.

The Islamic Jihad militant group, which Israel accused of instigating the latest violence, confirmed that a "mutual and concurrent" truce had been brokered by Egypt. Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said Egyptian mediators, along with officials from Qatar and the United Nations, helped reach the deal.

Basem Naim, a Hamas official, said that made it a particularly good time to pressure Israel, with its independence day celebrations also held this week.
