Hamas police officials in Gaza said there were at least 25 airstrikes across Gaza on Tuesday evening after the latest cease-fire came to an abrupt end.

The officials said that at least 21 people, including 14 women and children, were wounded in a strike that hit a building housing the offices of Hamas’ Al Aqsa TV station in Gaza City.

An Egyptian effort to broker an end to a month-long war between Israel and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip appeared to collapse Tuesday after Israel walked out of the talks in response to a barrage of Palestinian rocket fire.

Hours before Tuesday night’s deadline, Palestinian militants fired three rockets into Israel, according to the Israeli military who said the rockets landed in open areas near the southern Israeli city of Beersheba.

Later, Israel said it intercepted two more rockets over southern Israel.

The Israeli military said a total of 10 rockets had fallen, including one that damaged a coffee shop in southern Israel.

The Middle East cease-fire is over, with deadly consequences. Israel launched a wave of airstrikes over Gaza in retaliation for rockets fired into Israel. That aerial assault breaks a nearly week-long truce between the two sides. CCTV America’s Michal Bardavid reports.
