GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The Israeli military says it has resumed its attacks on the Gaza Strip, ending a self-declared, seven-hour cease-fire that was in effect for much of the day.

The Israeli military announced it resumed its attacks Monday night.

Israel said it declared the cease-fire to allow humanitarian supplies to enter Gaza. The seaside territory has been battered by a nearly monthlong war between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers.

Late Monday, Palestinian officials said an Israeli airstrike hit a target next to a desalination plant in Gaza, killing two people and wounding 16.

Palestinian officials say more than 1,880 people have been killed, most of them civilians. Sixty-seven people, all but three civilians, have been killed on the Israeli side.
