Molotov cocktails thrown at Israeli bus in Jerusalem

An Israeli bus was attacked with Molotov cocktails in Jerusalem on Tuesday, amid a new wave of violence in the beleaguered Gaza Strip. Israeli police said that two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the bus in Jerusalem, according to Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot. No injuries were reported, but the bus sustained damage in the attack. The attack comes amid rising violence in the Gaza Strip following the collapse of a temporary ceasefire between Palestinian factions and Israel. A Palestinian child was killed and 25 people were injured in Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, which Israel said came in response to rocket fire from the Palestinian territory. Palestinian resistance faction Hamas has described the Israeli attacks as an attempt to undermine Egypt-hosted negotiations aimed at reaching a permanent ceasefire. For the last nine days, Palestinian factions and Israel have been holding indirect negotiations in Cairo aimed at reaching a permanent truce. A five-day ceasefire expired on Monday. But the two sides agreed to extend it by 24 hours as part of Egyptian efforts aimed at reaching a permanent deal.

At least 2,016 Palestinians have been killed and more than 10,000 others injured in more than a month of devastating Israeli attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip since July 7.

According to Israeli figures, at least 64 Israeli soldiers have been killed in recent ground battles with Palestinian fighters in the Gaza Strip – the highest military death toll for Israel of any of its three onslaughts on the territory.

Three Israeli civilians, meanwhile, have been killed by rocket fire from Gaza.

Since 2007, the Gaza Strip – home to some 1.8 million Palestinians – has reeled under a crippling Israeli blockade that has badly affected the local economy and played havoc with residents' livelihoods.
