A cease-fire in the Gaza Strip collapsed Tuesday as an Israeli airstrike killed a 2-year-old girl and rockets landed around Tel Aviv, leaving the Cairo truce talks in tatters.Palestinian and Israeli officials traded blame for who was responsible for breaching the cease-fire first. Israelis said a burst of rocket fire hit Israel Tuesday afternoon, but Hamas' military wing denied any knowledge of the rockets and said it only fired in response to an Israeli barrage that left at least three dead. Palestinian medical official Ashraf al-Kidra said two people – a 40-year-old woman and a 2-year-old girl – were killed in an airstrike in Gaza City.Sixty-four Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel have also been killed during the offensive.
