Islamic Jihad (Holy War) movement based in the Gaza Strip on Thursday said Israel has committed 15 violations of an Egyptian-brokered Gaza ceasefire since it went into force a week ago.

The violations included the hovering of Israeli reconnaissance drones and F-16 fighters in Gaza skies, shooting at fishermen in the sea and opening fire on Palestinian farmers who approached their lands near the border security fence, said the movement.

It said the information about the violations was collected by its militants who monitor the borders. The movement itself was accused of breaching the ceasefire when it fired rocket into Israel on Tuesday.

The rocket attack was in retaliation for an Israeli army operation in the West Bank which stays out of the ceasefire deal.

As a result of the attack, Israel stopped the gradual lifting of the embargo imposed on Gaza since Hamas took over the territory in June 2007, but Hamas said it is still committed to the deal.
