(Newser) – The temporary Gaza ceasefire was broken today when three rockets landed in Israel, its military says, per the AP; the reported attack prompted new Israeli airstrikes within minutes. The rockets landed in fields near Beersheba, southern Israel; no one was hurt, officials say. An Israeli official says the military's new strikes are targeting "terror sites," the BBC reports. The attacks came hours before the scheduled end of the current ceasefire, the New York Times notes, adding that it's not certain who was behind the latest rocket attacks.

Just blow all the tunnels and Hamas leadership up. There will be no peace until Hamas is gone.
