After the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip ended and a cease-fire was negotiated between the resistance forces and the Israeli entity, life in the Gaza Strip slowly started to return to normal on Sunday morning.
On public roads and streets, vehicular traffic has returned, and markets and stores are now open for customers to purchase their necessities.
In order to protect student safety and ensure that there are no traces of the occupation aggression, the government media office also declared that working hours in institutions and ministries of the government would resume on Sunday. However, educational institutions would start back up on Monday.
According to a statement from the office, all government agencies will start implementing the action plan today in order to finish the damage inventory, repair the infrastructure, and help people who were harmed by the aggression.
The locals started looking at the evidence of property damage caused by Israeli raids during the violence in a mood of deep sadness.
The entry of trucks and fuel for the functioning of the power plant started this morning after the occupation authorities reopened the gates at Beit Hanoun and “Erez” for people and Karm Abu Salem for commerce.
The cease-fire agreement between the Islamic Jihad movement, the various resistance forces, and the occupation went into effect at ten o’clock yesterday evening, Saturday, thanks to Egyptian mediation.
Muhammad al-Hindi, the leader of the Jihad movement’s political division, stated that the ceasefire agreement calls for an end to the targeting of civilians, the destruction of homes, and the targeting of specific people.
He emphasized that “Israel” initiated the latest round of escalation by attacking civilian structures, to which we responded in self-defense, noting that “the real guarantees are our unity, while Israel has previously turned its back on it.”
After assassinating three members of the military council of the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, Israel began a five-day offensive against the Gaza Strip. In response, the Brigades launched hundreds of missiles toward settlements along the Strip’s border as well as occupied towns and cities with full assistance, coordination, and management from the resistance’s Joint Operations Room.
