Israel resumes Gaza strikes in response to rockets

August 8, 2014

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says it has resumed strikes on targets "across Gaza" in response to rocket fire from the territory that was aimed at Israel.

The new round of fighting came after a three-day truce expired on Friday morning and Israel-Hamas talks that have been underway in Cairo on a new border deal for blockaded Gaza hit a deadlock.

After the end of the temporary, 72-hour cease-fire, Gaza militants fired at least 17 rockets at Israel. Gaza's police say that Israel then resumed tank fire on northern Gaza and launched an airstrike that hit a farm south of Gaza City.

The Israeli military said that following renewed rocket fire, it targeted sites linked to militant groups "across Gaza."
