Plumes of smoke rise from border area in the eastern Gaza city after Palestinian militants fired mortars toward Israel on August 24, 2011. An Israeli strike killed Ismael al-Ismar, 34, in Rafah scarcely 48 hours after militant factions had agreed to a temporary ceasefire -- on condition Israel also stopped its air strikes.
