Israel: Rockets fired from Gaza, cease-fire broken

JERUSALEM (AP) - The Israeli military says three rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip, breaking a temporary cease-fire amid negotiations over the war between Israel and Hamas.

The military says three rockets landed in open fields Tuesday near the southern city of Beersheba.

Israel launched the war on July 8 to stop incessant rocket fire from Gaza. Currently, Egypt is trying to broker a longer cease-fire to end the war.

In more than a month of fighting, nearly 2,000 Palestinians have been killed, the majority of them civilians. Israel lost 67 people, all but three of them soldiers.
