Report from Beit Lahiya: Israel continues to break the ceasefire in Gaza

A ceasefire was announced on November 21st, ending eight days of horrific bloodshed in Gaza. Has the delicate truce held over the past two months? It depends who you ask. While there has not been a single report of a rocket fired out of Gaza since the ceasefire went into effect, four Palestinians have lost their lives and over 80 have been injured by Israeli forces in that time period. Above, Abdullah Marouf, 18, was shot in the right leg by Israeli forces on Monday, fracturing both his tibia and fibula.
