Fighting erupts in Gaza strip

A five-month-old cease fire has come to an end in the Gaza strip after nine Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunmen Sunday, reports CNN.

One of those killed was a 17-year-old Palestinian girl who was looking out of her window when she was shot by Israeli gunfire, said MSNBC.

According to The New York Times, the American International School in Beit Lahiya, north of Gaza City, was bombed and set on fire by over a dozen masked Palestinians early Saturday morning. No one was injured.

The Washington Post is reporting that Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said, "The blood of our people is not cheap." He called on the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas's military wing, and "the Palestinian resistance groups to be united in the trench of resistance and to use all possible means of resistance to respond to the massacres."
