Israel army says resuming Gaza strikes as lull ends

The Israeli army said on Monday it was resuming its strikes on the Gaza Strip, after the end of a seven-hour humanitarian lull.

"We are resuming our operations, including air strikes, against terrorist infrastructures in Gaza," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner told AFP.

He said troops were redeploying within Gaza while other forces were pulling out in a process which began on Saturday.
