Israel reports new rocket attacks from Gaza Strip


JERUSALEM (AP) - The Israeli military says Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have fired two more rockets into southern Israel.

It says the rockets were intercepted and no one was hurt. But the barrage is the latest violation of a cease-fire that is set to expire in just over five hours.

Earlier Tuesday, militants fired three rockets, sparking a series of Israeli airstrikes in retaliation.

The burst of violence has thrown Egyptian-mediated negotiations aimed at ending the monthlong Gaza war into question.

The war has killed some 2,000 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and left tens of thousands more homeless. Sixty-seven Israelis have died, all but three of them soldiers.
