Fighting resumed between Israel and Hamas on Friday morning, bringing an end to a seven-day ceasefire between the two sides, which saw the release of hostages and prisoners and the arrival of urgently needed humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip.

An hour later, the Israeli army said that fighting had resumed, accusing Hamas of violating the terms of the agreement.
