IDF soldier Sergeant Aviv Levi, who was killed yesterday by a Palestinian sniper near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, was buried at the military section of the Segula cemetery in Petah Tikva at noon.
Prime Minister Netanyahu sent condolences to the soldier's family on behalf of all Israeli citizens. "Aviv and his friends fought resolutely and bravely against terror from the Gaza Strip, and unfortunately, this struggle sometimes exacts an unbearable price," the prime minister said. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman wrote on Twitter: "Aviv has fallen in its defense of the people, the land and the residents of the Gaza vicinity." The Eshkol regional council issued a statement of mourning saying that it embraces the Levi family and the soldiers of the Kissufim Battalion, where Aviv, one of the battalions guarding the Gaza perimeter communities, served. The mayor of Petah Tikva, Itzik Braverman, eulogized Aviv Levy and said that Israel had lost one of its best sons

 Hamas spokesman announced Friday night that the cease-fire had been restored with the mediation of Egypt and the United Nations. There was no immediate confirmation of a renewed truce from the Israeli side although all Israeli attacks stopped and during the night no rockets were fired to Israel. this morning the  cease-fire was broken aferr few yong palestinans tried to cross the fence. 

 Israeli warplanes launched  Friday night a large-scale attack across the Gaza Strip on one of the fiercest in years, after a Palestinian sniper killed an Israeli soldier along the border fence during a day of escalating hostilities.

Successive explosions rocked Gaza City at nightfall and the streets emptied as warplanes struck dozens of sites that Israel said belonged to the military wing of Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza.

The IDF soldier was killed yesterday afternoon by terrorists near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, and his family was informed that the soldier was shot by a Palestinian sniper

 In response, the IAF destroyed three Hamas battalion headquarters - the headquarters of the Zeitun battalion in the northern Gaza Strip, the headquarters of the El Burij battalion in the central Gaza Strip and the headquarters of the Khan Yunis battalion in the south

 Sixty terrorist targets were bombed at these headquarters: factories and lathes for the manufacture of weapons, an entry shaft for a network of terror tunnels, a warehouse for unmanned aircraft, military warheads, training compounds and observation posts.

 No Palestinian casualties were reported in the air strike on the three Hamas headquarters, but sources in the Gaza Strip reported that four IDF operatives were killed in IDF attacks immediately after the killing of the soldier and about 100 Palestinians were wounded

Israeli security experts said the aerial assault was one of the most intense since a cease-fire ended 50 days of fighting in the territory in 2014. The ferocity of the bombings raised fears that the hostilities could spiral into a war, though analysts said neither side seemed eager to have an all-out conflict.

A source in the White House says that Israel has the right to defend itself against aggressive measures by Hamas. The American official added that Hamas was responsible for ending the violence and that the organization and its actions were harming the residents of Gaza.

Jason Greenblat President Trump emissary to the Middeast says on twitter: As Israelis work tirelessly on their northern border to treat Syrian refugees, Hamas works relentlessly to destroy Israeli lives (& Gazans suffer as a result of Hamas). Today a young Israeli soldier was murdered by Hamas. Our thoughts & prayers are with that young man's family.
