Israel strikes Gaza as Egypt-mediated talks continue


08-09-2014 16:32 BJT

The Israeli military said it has conducted more than 20 aerial attacks over Gaza, and Gaza militants have fired more rockets overnight Friday and this morning.

A rocket could be seen launching into the sky above Gaza City, leaving a trail of smoke behind. Elsewhere in the city, smoke billowed in at least two locations after Israeli airstrikes. The eruption of fighting came a day after a 72-hour truce collapsed between the two sides. The Egyptian-mediated talks in Cairo are ongoing but there is no sign of any imminent deal. Hamas blamed Israel for the failure of the talks in Cairo.

According to Palestinian and UN officials, more than 19-hundred Gazans and sixty-seven Israelis have been killed in the past four weeks of violence.
