Palestinian militants have fired at least 3 mortars from Gaza at Israel, during a humanitarian ceasefire.

Hamas and Israel had agreed to halt fighting for five hours today, to allow Gazans to stock up on supplies.

The Israeli military earlier warned it would "respond immediately" if attacked during the truce.

Israel launched its military operation on 8th July, with the stated objective of halting Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

However, the United Nations says most of those killed in Gaza have been civilians.

Israel accuses Hamas of hiding its military infrastructure within the civilian population.
