On November 8, 2012, Israeli Defense Forces raided Gaza and killed a 13 year old boy who was playing soccer. Palestinian fighters retaliated by attacking Israeli forces that were surrounding Gaza. Israel then responded by attacking civilian areas in Gaza. Although Israel proceeded to sign a truce to end the violence, the truce was broken the next day when Hamas leader, Ahmed Jabari, was assassinated. A truce was brokered later in November, but was broken in April 2013.
