    Incidents of violence on the Gaza-Israeli border have been sporadic since January 2009, when Israel ended a three-week warthat left around 1,400 Palestinians dead.

    Hamas- the Palestinian faction that administers the coastal enclave - has largely stuck to a de facto ceasefire with Israel since then, but smaller groups like Islamic Jihad have not, occasionally firing rockets and mortars over the border.
