It was negotiated as a three-day humanitarian cease-fire that was to start at 8 a.m. local time today.

But just hours in, fighting erupted again in Gaza.

Palestinian authorities told the AP that at least 27 people were killed in Gaza after an Israeli tank opened fire. NPR's Emily Harris reports Israel accused Hamas of continuing its rocket fire.

One Israeli official told Emily: "At this point it's clear the Palestinians violated the ceasefire in three ways. They attacked us in Gaza, they sent rockets toward Israeli cities and they fired mortar shells on the Kerem crossing."

The big question now is if this means the cease-fire is over. Emily says that's a political decision that Israel and Hamas have yet to make public.

"Basically, it's not clear, if this fighting just a few hours after the cease-fire was supposed to take effect has thrown everything out the window or not," Emily reports.
