After over 100 hours of negotiations the cease fire ended short today after three rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel.
The talks that were being held in Egypt were abruptly ended as a result.  The Israeli military launched an airstrike against militant targets in Gaza and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recalled the Israeli delegation from Cairo.
A spokesman for the prime minister reiterated Israel’s position that it will not negotiate under rocket fire, but declined to comment on whether Israel was willing to resume talks if calm returned.
“The talks are based on a premise that there is a cease-fire,” said Mark Regev, a spokesman for the prime minister. “If there is no cease-fire, there is no foundation to the discussions.”
