Israeli forces 'shell Beit Hanoun' despite truce

Aug. 4, 2014 1:05 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 4, 2014 3:02 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Ma'an reporter in Gaza said Israeli forces had resumed shelling in Beit Hanoun, despite an Israeli-declared humanitarian truce.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Israel had earlier informed residents of Beit Hanoun that it was safe to return home at 2 p.m.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Israeli forces operating in the area had been targeted by militant mortar fire. The forces responded by shelling the areas from which they were fired upon, the spokeswoman said.

She said Israeli shelling had since ceased in the area.
