Video 'shows rockets being fired from Gaza'

A video from Al-Quds Brigades, a military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, claims to show rockets being fired from Gaza.

Israel said it launched air strikes across the Gaza Strip in response to Palestinian rockets being fired after talks to extend a 72-hour truce in the month-long war collapsed.

As rocket-warning sirens sounded in southern Israel, the military said Hamas had fired at least 18 rockets from Gaza and Israel's 'Iron Dome' interceptor system brought down two. Gaza militants said they had fired 10 rockets.
