An Israeli government spokesman says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the military to strike what he called "terror targets" in Gaza. This comes after three rockets landed in Israel, causing no damage or casualties. 

"Today’s rocket attack on our city of Beersheva is a direct and grave violation of the ceasefire that Hamas, itself, committed to. This is the 11th ceasefire that Hamas has either rejected or violated. And it must be clear, if one side violates the ceasefire, the other side is no longer obligated to honour the same ceasefire," said Mark Regev, Spokesman of Israeli Government.  

Meanwhile, medics say three Palestinians were killed and 40 others wounded in the intensive Israeli war jets’ airstrikes on Gaza Tuesday night. On Tuesday afternoon, eight Palestinians were injured in Israeli airstrikes on central and southern Gaza Strip. This came after Netanyahu’s order to answer the rocket attack on Israel earlier in the day. 

Netanyahu had ordered his negotiating team in Egypt to return home. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have failed to make any progress in Egyptian-mediated talks in Cairo.
