Gaza Truce Collapses Amid Hail Of Rockets

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - Egypt's prime minister says the Israeli air attacks on targets in Gaza must end.
    
The Egyptian official today visited Gaza, even as Palestinian rocket squads took aim at Tel Aviv for a second straight day.  Sirens wailed across the city this afternoon shortly before an explosion was heard.
    
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says no injuries have been reported and it appears the rocket landed in the Mediterranean.
    
Israel says it stopped its attacks in Gaza during the Egyptian prime minister's visit. But there are signs that an Israeli ground invasion may be imminent.
    
MORE DETAILS:
    
JERUSALEM (AP) - Air raid sirens have just sounded in Jerusalem, signaling a possible rocket attack aimed at Israel's capital.
    
If verified, it would be the first time the holy city has ever been targeted by rockets fired by Gaza militants.
    
Israeli media say the rocket fell north of Jerusalem, but authorities have not confirmed the reports. In Gaza, Hamas militants said they had attacked Jerusalem.

Thousands rally in Egypt against Israel offensive
    
CAIRO (AP) - Thousands are protesting across Egypt against Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip.
    
The demonstrations come on the day that Egypt's prime minister, Hesham Kandil, traveled to Gaza in a symbolic show of support for the territory's Hamas rulers.
    
Egyptians marched in the country's two largest cities, Cairo and Alexandria, waving Palestinian flags and chanting slogans against Israel. In Cairo's Tahrir Square, a few hundred protesters burned an Israeli flag.
    
President Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood called for the demonstrations. Egypt has recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv in protest.
    
In his Friday sermon in Cairo, influential cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi said the Islamic world would not be silent in the face of Israel's military operation in Gaza.
    
Israel says it is responding to rocket fire by Gaza militants.
