The Israeli military says it has resumed strikes on targets ``across Gaza'' in response to rocket fire from the territory that was aimed at Israel.

The new round of fighting came after a three-day truce expired on Friday morning and Israel-Hamas talks that have been underway in Cairo on a new border deal for blockaded Gaza hit a deadlock.

After the end of the temporary, 72-hour cease-fire, Gaza militants fired at least 17 rockets at Israel. Gaza's police say that Israel then resumed tank fire on northern Gaza and launched an
airstrike that hit a farm south of Gaza City.

The Israeli military said that following renewed rocket fire, it targeted sites linked to militant groups ``across Gaza.''
