A cease fire intended to allow aid into Gaza lasted only 15minutes. Hamas broke it by launching rockets into Israel.

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- A truce in Gaza that was supposed to last three hours on Wednesday failed after just 15 minutes.

The suspension of the campaign from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. was intended to allow residents of the Hamas-ruled Palestinian territory to receive food and medical supplies.

Israeli forces fired at militants in Gaza after Hamas militants targeted Israeli forces "almost immediately at 1 p.m.," according to Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman Peter Lerner.

What is wrong with those people?

This report says nothing about fighting during the 3 hour cease fire.

While the guns fell silent for several hours on Wednesday, news reports from the Israel-Gaza border area said a string of explosions was soon heard after the three-hour lull ended. Israel said the three-hour lull would be repeated every other day between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to allow Gaza’s population to seek medical help, buy food and receive humanitarian supplies.

Glad to hear Israel is planning to do this everyday.

And if it goes well, it can be expanded upon.

The Palestinian people, for the most part, want to live in peace. Hamas won't let them.
