6 Fired from Gaza hours before a truce-ending deadline, 3 rockets aimed at Beersheba and Netivot drew dozens of "terror target" airstrikes from Israel, which recalled its diplomats from Cairo. Hamas, which denied firing the initial rockets, had refused in negotiations to give up weapons, an Israeli condition. Two hours after the renewed violence began, Tel Aviv came under rocket attack. This time, Hamas claimed credit and blamed Israel for the escalation.
