Rockets fired from Gaza, Israel responds with strikes
August 8 , 2014
With the 72-hour ceasefire coming to an end, the Israeli military has carried out strikes in Gaza after rockets were fired from the strip into Israel.
At least 18 rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel, the Israeli military reported. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it had “targeted terror sites across the Gaza Strip” in response.
Militant group Hamas has denied firing the rockets.
Meanwhile, indirect talks between Hamas and Israel in Cairo have not produced any results so far.
