First rockets hit Israel after overnight lull

Nov. 18, 2012 8:29 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 18, 2012 7:04 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Several rockets hit southern Israel on Sunday morning after an overnight lull in fire from Gaza, Israel's army said.

Projectiles landed in the Hof Ashkelon and Eshkol regions after 8 a.m., an army spokeswoman said. Israeli news site Ynet said a building in Ashkelon was damaged and two people lightly injured by shrapnel.

They were the first rockets fired from Gaza into Israel since midnight on Saturday, according to the army.

Meanwhile, military jets fired on approximately 70 sites in the Gaza Strip overnight.

Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal was in Cairo on Saturday for talks on a potential truce to end the bombardments, which have killed some 50 Palestinians over four days.

Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi said on Saturday there were "some indications" a ceasefire could be reached soon between Israel and Gaza Palestinians but he had no firm guarantees.

A Palestinian official told Reuters the truce discussions would continue in Cairo on Sunday, saying "there is hope," but it was too early to say whether the efforts would succeed.
