(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon and Khaled Abu Toameh - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon directed the IDF to respond forcefully against terrorist targets after Hamas renewed rocket fire from Gaza at Israel. Israel will respond to Hamas' latest cease-fire violations with a degree of force that will convince it that breaking truces is not worthwhile, Israeli officials said Tuesday. This was the 11th cease-fire Hamas violated since the fighting began on July 8, an official said. Meanwhile, Egyptian sources reported that a serious rift erupted between Fatah and Hamas negotiators in Cairo following reports that the Islamist movement had planned to stage a coup against the PA in the West Bank.
