1. Gaza cease-fire ends

The week-long Gaza truce expired Friday and Israel said its military has resumed airstrikes against Hamas. Talks aimed at a new cease-fire continued as about 140 hostages remained in Gaza, out of the 240 people Hamas fighters captured in their deadly Oct. 7 raid in southern Israel. Hamas leaders said they were "still interested in a truce." The Palestinian militant group released eight Israeli hostages on Thursday, including six women aged 21 to 41, plus two Bedouin Arabs, a teenage brother and sister. At least three people were killed in a shooting at a Jerusalem bus stop, fueling concerns of mounting violence outside of Gaza. Hamas claimed responsibility for the shooting. Haaretz, NBC News
