Fighting has resumed for a second day in Gaza as ceasefire talks between Israel and Hamas in Qatar reached a ‘dead end’.

Israeli fighter jets bombed several targets moments after the temporary ceasefire in the war officially ended at 7am local time yesterday.

The 7am deadline was the agreed time at which hostilities would resume if there were no agreement for further hostage releases.

More than 178 people have been killed since the bombing restarted yesterday, according to the Hamas-run health ministry, and the Israeli military says it has struck more than 400 targets.

Meanwhile Israeli intelligence officers have been ordered to leave Qatar after ceasefire negotiations in the country reached a ‘dead end’.

Israel has also dropped leaflets urging residents in some areas of southern Gaza to leave and head further south to Rafah, near the Egypt border.

Sirens were also heard in parts of Israel yesterday, with rockets fired from Gaza intercepted.
