Israeli drones still hovering over Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli drones continued to hover over the Gaza Strip on Thursday, despite a ceasefire brokered the previous evening.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad agreed an Egyptian-mediated truce to halt hostilities on Wednesday night, ending eight days of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Residents on Thursday complained that despite the ceasefire, the noise of Israeli reconnaissance planes continued to disturb them.

"We do not want to feel that we still under the Israeli authorities' sight, and we do not want to feel that we still in a war," said Rana Matar.

Other residents said they couldn't sleep because of the constant noise.

Political analyst Mustafa al-Sawaf told Ma'an the drones were part of Israel's occupation, and would not stop despite the truce.

"The Israeli occupation wants to see what is happening on the ground in the Gaza strip, and especially as the battle is over."

He added: "We do not accept such attitude."
