OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: Israel launched attacks in the Gaza Strip Tuesday and recalled its negotiators from truce talks in Cairo after saying three Palestinian rockets had hit southern Israel, hours before a cease-fire was due to expire.

A Reuters correspondent saw an Israeli plane fire a missile east of Gaza City. The Israeli military said it was attacking "terror targets" across the territory.

An Israeli official said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had ordered the negotiating team to return home.
