Israel launched airstrikes across the Gaza Strip Friday in response to Palestinian rockets fired after Egyptian-mediated talks failed to extend a 72-hour truce in the month-long war.There was also no immediate response from Israel.As warning sirens sounded in southern Israel, the military said Hamas had fired at least 45 rockets Friday morning and Israel's "Iron Dome" interceptor system had brought down two.By resuming its attacks, Hamas appeared to be trying to put pressure on Israel, making clear it was ready to fight on to end a blockade of Gaza that both Israel and neighboring Egypt have imposed on the impoverished enclave.In Israel, police said two people were injured by mortar fire from Gaza.Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said Israel had rejected most Palestinian demands.Gaza officials say the war has killed at least 1,896 Palestinians, most of them civilians.
