Israel police say two rockets were fired from Gaza during a humanitarian cease-fire.

Israel and Hamas began observing a five-hour humanitarian cease-fire on Thursday, after fighting raged until moments before the start of the pause and Israel vowed it would retaliate if Hamas breaks the calm.

The twitter account for Israel Defense Forces claims 3 mortars were fired, "While we held our fire, Hamas terrorists fired 3 mortars that hit the Israeli community of Eshkol"

Palestinian officials said at least three people were killed in the southern Gaza town of Rafah when an Israeli tank shell hit a house. And, Israel's military said it thwarted an attack by more than a dozen Gaza militants who tunnelled under the border.

The pause comes on the 10th day of fighting that has seen Israel carry out more than a thousand air strikes on the embattled Palestinian territory as Hamas has fired a similar number of rockets into Israel.

The cross-border fighting has so far killed more than 230 Palestinians and one Israeli, according to officials.
