Palestinian militants resume rocket fire as truce expires

PanARMENIAN.Net - Palestinian militants resumed firing rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip on Friday, Aug 8, Israeli police and municipal officials said, after a 72-hour ceasefire expired, Reuters reported.

There were no reports of casualties or damage after sirens sounded in southern Israel, nor was there any immediate Israeli military response. A spokeswoman for Hamas, the Islamist militant group that dominates the Gaza Strip, said it would not extend the truce but talks in Cairo mediated by Egypt would continue.
