The Israeli government did not reply to the Palestinian statements and released no official announcements regarding the ceasefire.

The Israeli military said most of the projectiles were intercepted, but three soldiers were wounded, raising the chances of further Israeli retaliation. There were no immediate reports of any casualties in the strip.

Calm returned to the Gaza Strip and nearby Israeli communities on Wednesday.

The IDF said it counted more than 100 launches from Gaza, and it responded with more than 60 airstrikes on targets in the enclave.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas condemned what he called Israel's "fierce aggression" against the Gaza Strip.

Islamic Jihad spokesman Daoud Shihab said his faction "does not want an escalation or war".

For instance, Nugent significantly downplays the frequency and severity of Hamas rocket attacks, stating: "Sporadic rocket fire and attacks from Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza have been met with several bombing campaigns and land assaults from Israel".

Three members of Hamas's allies were killed in an Israeli strike on Sunday, with the group vowing revenge.

Islamic Jihad is the second-largest armed group in Gaza after Hamas.

The council is expected to vote this week on the Kuwait-drafted proposal calling for protection of Palestinian civilians. "In response, Israel invaded Gaza, occupying the strip for a year before worldwide pressure forced them to give it back to Egypt". Israel has said its forces have "operated in accordance with the rules of engagement" to protect its border. More than 115 people have been killed since protests began on Gaza's border in March. No children were present at the time.

Israel unilaterally withdrew its settlements and military presence from Gaza in 2005. Explosions shook the Palestinian enclave and smoke rose from the sites hit.

In response to a question from Army Radio about Israel's relatively measured response to a barrage of mortar and rocket fire, Bennett said that Israel has to focus on the real culprit. It alleged some of the mortar rounds fired throughout the day were supplied by Iran.

On Tuesday night, a rocket hit an Israeli home near the Gaza border, but no one was hurt, the military said.

Cabinet Minister Tzachi Hanegbi says Israel's Gaza policy is based on deterrence.

Netanyahu repeated that Israel would not suffice with a buffer-zone free of Iranian-backed forces along the Israeli-Syrian border, and again demanded a full withdrawal of Iranian-backed militias and the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps from Syria.

Demonstrations and clashes have continued at a low level since then. Seventy-two people were killed on the Israeli side.

A Hamas-affiliated Twitter account announced the cease-fire in the Gaza Strip would hold as long as the "occupier", or Israel, did the same.
