Israel and Hamas resumed fighting in Gaza on Friday after a seven-day truce expired with no deal to extend it. In the north of the enclave, the main war zone for weeks, huge plumes of smoke rose above the ruins, seen from across the fence in Israel.
Gaza health officials reported that 35 people had already been killed and dozens wounded in air strikes that hit at least eight homes. Medics and witnesses said the bombing was most intensive in the cities of Khan Younis and Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, and also targeted houses in central and northern areas.
