Are the Palestinians in Gaza and Israel heading for a new confrontation?

Officials of Palestinian resistance factions in the Gaza Strip met on Monday afternoon to discuss how to deal with the Israeli procrastination over its pledges to fulfil the terms of the ceasefire that ended the occupation state's 11-day offensive on the besieged enclave between 11 and 21 May. The meeting was due to be held at the office of Yahya Al-Sinwar, the senior Hamas official in Gaza, but minutes after it was opened, a security alert caused the building to be evacuated. Apparently, a rocket was fired from Gaza towards Israel.

The Palestinian factions announced earlier that they might be heading for a new confrontation with Israel if the occupation state does not commit to the pledges it made in May.

Regional and international actors, including the UN and the US, brokered the indirect talks between the Palestinian resistance groups and Israel. The ceasefire terms stipulated that Israel would reopen the border crossings, ease the 15-year-old siege imposed on the coastal enclave, allow the entry of humanitarian funding from Qatar and facilitate the reconstruction of the territory in the wake of the latest Israeli military offensive.
