JERUSALEM - Palestinian militants fired three homemade rockets into southern Israel on Tuesday, threatening to unravel a cease-fire days after it began, and Israel responded by closing vital into Gaza.
Despite what it called a "gross violation" of the truce, Israel refrained from military action and said it would send an envoy soon toto work on the next stage of a broader cease-fire agreement: a prisoner swap that would bring home an Israeli soldier held by for more than two years.
Hamas, thethat rules Gaza, promised to rein in the Iran- and Syria-backed faction that carried out the rocket attacks and pledged to remain committed to the truce that went into effect June 19 and urged restraint by all sides. - Yahoo!
Ending a ceasefire is a great idea [/sarcasm]
