On August 19, 2014, the Israeli-Hamas ceasefire collapsed following the firing of three rockets into Israel. Since then the fighting has continued, with both sides intensifying their attacks. Hamas has fired massive rocket and mortar shell barrages at Israel, especially targeting the communities near the Gaza Strip. The IDF has intensified its response and attacked more than 300 terrorist targets since the ceasefire collapsed Meanwhile, efforts continue to arrange an end to the fighting and the renewal of negotiations. Cairo is the focal point for the negotiations, but there is activity in the UN for a Security Council Resolution. So far, Hamas' position has been intransigent and refuses to agree to the Egyptian initiative.
