Ceasefire crumbles; at least 40 dead in Israeli shelling in Gaza Strip

Israeli shelling near the southern Gaza town of Rafah killed at least 40 people on Friday, the local hospital said, as a ceasefire that went into effect only hours earlier crumbled.

Israel accused Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups of violating the U.S.- and U.N.-mediated truce.

But did not elaborate, amid Israeli media reports that gunmen had fired at Israeli soldiers in the Rafah area.
