    Israel and Hamas go back to fighting after 5-hour truce ends
    Fighting resumed in the Gaza Strip on Thursday after a short and mostly observed humanitarian truce expired, with a fresh volley of rockets from militants and airstrikes by the Israelis amid a flurry of unconfirmed reports a comprehensive cease-fire was...
