The Israel Defense Forces said all troops were withdrawn from Gaza in the hours before the cease-fire began. Streets in northern Gaza were empty immediately after the truce took hold. Minutes before the ceasefire went into effect, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired at least three Qassam rockets at Israel.(UPDATE II) Double whoops! (C'mon - you saw this one coming a mile away, right?...):
One of the rockets hit a house in Sderot, causing damage but no injuries:
Two Qassams landed at the entrances to kibbutzim in the western Negev, causing no damage or injuries. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attacks. Several additional rockets hit open areas in Israel during the course of the night. No damage or injuries were reported.
From Yid With Lid, who takes sharp aim at this developing report:
The armed faction of the Islamic Jihad and Abu Reish, an armed faction of Fatah, both announced early Sunday that they were not part of the ceasefire agreement.
A spokesman for Abu Reish denied the movement's participation in Saturday's meeting between Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Ismail Haniyeh and Palestinian factions during which the ceasefire was agreed.
