Israeli and Palestinian negotiators resumed indirect talks mediated by Egypt Monday on ending a month-old Gaza war, Egypt's state news agency said, after a new 72-hour truce appeared to be holding.The Israeli military said one rocket was launched at the Tel Aviv area, in Israel's commercial heartland, before the cease-fire began at 2100 GMT Sunday and may have landed in the sea. A senior Israeli government official had said Sunday Israeli negotiators, who had left Cairo Friday hours before a previous three-day cease-fire expired, would return to Egypt to resume the talks only if the new truce held.A month of war has killed at least 1,939 Palestinians and 67 Israelis while devastating wide tracts of densely populated Gaza, and Egypt's Foreign Ministry has urged both sides to work towards "a comprehensive and lasting cease-fire agreement".Nearly 12,000 homes have been destroyed or severely damaged by Israeli attacks.Israeli airstrikes and shelling Sunday killed nine Palestinians in Gaza, medics said, in a third day of renewed fighting since the last truce ended.
