Hamas terrorists shelled Gaza Strip settlements, calling into question a de facto cease-fire brokered by the new Palestinian Authority president.There were no casualties in Monday’s attacks on the Neveh Dekalim, Netzer Hazani and Rafiah Yam settlements, though one Israeli home was damaged. Hamas called the shelling, which broke almost two weeks of relative calm in Gaza, retaliation for the death earlier Monday of a Palestinian girl in the southern town of Rafah.
