The article reports that Palestinian militants from Hamas have fired rockets into Israel and declared an end to the group's five-month ceasefire. On Israel's 59th Independence Day on April 24, 2007 Hamas released a volley of rockets and mortars across the border from the Gaza Strip. It is the first time Hamas has openly acknowledged responsibility for attacks on Israel since it agreed to a ceasefire along the border with Gaza in November 2006.
