At least 20 Palestinians, including four children, killed as fighting resumed after another failed cease-fire

……………….The Hamas-affiliated Al-Rasallah website quoted Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouq accusing Israel of fabricating reports of rockets that it said broke the cease-fire in order to try to assassinate the group’s military commander, Mohamed Deif, Israeli news website Haaretz reported. Marzouq said instead of killing the chief, the air strikes in Gaza City killed his wife and daughter. “The wife of the great leader was martyred with his daughter,” Marzouq said in comments on Facebook. The Israeli military did not specify any of the 60 strikes it carried out across Gaza since the end of the truce, but has tried to assassinate Deif in air strikes at least four times before – calling him responsible for bombings inside Israel. An Israeli cabinet minister said on Wednesday that Deif was a legitimate target. “Mohamed Deif deserves to die just like [Osama] bin Laden. He is an arch murderer and as long as we have an opportunity we will try to kill him,” Interior Minister Gideon Saar told army radio according to news agency Agence France-Presse.
