Gaza militants renewed rocket fire on Israel after a three-day truce expired Friday and negotiations in Cairo on a new border deal for the coastal strip hit a deadlock.Earlier, a senior Hamas official said the militant group would not extend the cease-fire. He said Israel had rejected all of Hamas' demands in Egyptian-brokered talks, including a guarantee in principle that Gaza's borders would be opened. Israeli strikes on Gaza killed nearly 1,900 Palestinians, wounded more than 9,000, devastated large areas along Gaza's border with Israel and displaced tens of thousands of people.Israel and Egypt had enforced the blockade to varying degrees since Hamas seized Gaza by force in 2007 .Israel argues that it needs to keep Gaza's borders as long as Hamas tries to smuggle weapons into Gaza.
