Fragile Cease-Fire: The cease-fire established Saturday along the Gaza-Israel border remains fragile. Yesterday, Palestinians reportedly fired eight mortar shells at the border crossings and Israeli soldiers patrolling the border were shot at. Israeli soldiers returned fire. There were also reports of machine-gun fire today from Israeli navy ships at beaches in northern Gaza.
