    In light of the deteriorating security situation on the security border with Gaza, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday decided to call an emergency Cabinet meeting to set policy for the volatile region.

    Netanyahu called a Cabinet meeting for Thursday evening to be attended by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot.

    In the meeting, ministers and security officials are to try and hash out a policy for IDF activities on the Gaza security border as it heats up.

    Shortly afterwards, Khalil al-Haya, a senior Hamas politburo member, claimed that a truce to end the current outbreak of fighting on the Gaza border has been reached with Israel, thanks to the help of Egypt, Qatar and the UN.

    The statement comes despite the fact that a ceasefire is currently supposed to be in effect after having been reached between Israel and the Hamas terrorist organization in August 2014, ending Operation Protective Edge.

    Three separate Hamas mortar attacks were launched at roughly two hour intervals by Gazan terrorists on IDF soldiers near the security border in southern Gaza on Thursday.

    A mortar shell was launched at the soldiers around 7 p.m.; fortunately no one was wounded.

    Roughly two hours earlier two mortars rounds were fired by the terrorists, likewise wounding no one. The IDF responded to the two with tank fire.

    The Israeli Air Force (IAF) then responded to the mortars by launching airstrikes in southern Gaza. At least four Hamas terror targets were said to be hit in the strikes.

    According to Palestinian media a Gazan woman was killed in the Israeli response.

    The first mortar attack of the day came as two mortar shells were fired at soldiers working near the border to unearth Hamas’s terror tunnel network, which runs underneath the border to facilitate attacks inside sovereign Israeli territory.

    Thursday’s attacks followed at least six mortar attacks in the previous two days, but the terrorists were unable to prevent Israel from unearthing a new Hamas terror tunnel on Thursday morning.

    In yet another blow to the terrorists it was revealed on Thursday that a senior Hamas terrorist was captured by Israel, and he revealed extensive information regarding the terror tunnels.
