Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will respond to any attempt to violate the Egyptian-brokered truce that ended four days of cross-border violence with Gaza militants.

Benjamin Netanyahu said: "Our message is clear - quiet will bring quiet. Anyone who violates it or even tries to violate it, our guns will find him."

Tuesday’s truce between Israel and Gazan militant groups follows exchanges that saw 25 Palestinians killed and 200 rockets fired into Israel. Schools in southern Israel are now planning to reopen, having been closed for four days, while the Israeli military says no airstrikes have been carried out since the truce was agreed.

The region’s worst violence in nearly a year drew widespread international condemnation. It began on Friday when Israel assassinated a senior Palestinian officer it said was plotting to attack Israel from Egyptian territory.

Benjamin Netanyahu had warned that the army could expand its operations if the fire
continued.
