Israel strikes Gaza after militants resume rocket fire

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel said it launched air strikes across the Gaza Strip on Friday in response to Palestinian rockets fired after Egyptian-mediated talks failed to extend a 72-hour truce in the month-long war.

As rocket-warning sirens sounded in southern Israel, the military said Hamas had fired at least 18 rockets from Gaza and Israel's "Iron Dome" interceptor system brought down two. No injuries or damage were reported. Gaza militants said they had fired 10 rockets on Friday.
