Did Cease-Fire Fail?
Several rockets were fired from Gaza, hours before a 72-hour ceasefire was to end. At least two separate alerts were issued since 2:47 PM Eastern Time.
According to media reports, two rockets fired hit near Ashkelon, a city on the Mediteranean Sea. A third rocket landed near the Gaza perimeter. The rockets fired by Hamas, a terrorist group whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel, did not cause any casualties.
