Cairo: Ships calling Israel must be very vigilant as fighting between Israel and Hamas returned in force today.
Palestinian rockets reached as far as the port city of Ashdod this morning, some 40 km south of Tel Aviv. A total of five rockets hit the city, although there were no reports of casualties.
A brief ceasefire over the weekend came to a close overnight and the fighting is expected to continue for days. More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed so far.
A report out on Friday from P&I Club, Skuld, said that all ports in Israel are operating normally, but care needs to be taken as the situation can develop and change without notice. [27/07/14]
