Extended Cease Fire Rejected, Israel on the Offensive

Israel is back on the offensive against Gaza.

The Israeli military says Palestinian militants fired seven rockets into southern Israel early Sunday.

Five of those seven rockets landed in open areas.

Yesterday Hamas rejected extending the ceasefire, saying any truce with Israel will have to include a withdrawal of Israeli forces from the Gaza strip.

But Israel says the solders have to stay until tunnels from Gaza to Israel are destroyed.

The Palestinian death toll is now more than a thousand, and 43 are dead in Israel.
