JERUSALEM, Israel - The Israeli military says Gaza militants have fired a barrage of at least five rockets at southern Israel shortly after a three-day truce between Israel and Hamas expired.

The military says one rocket was intercepted over the city of Ashkelon, and the other rockets hit open areas.

A three-day truce between Israel and Hamas expired at 8 a.m. after indirect talks in Cairo on new border arrangements for the blockaded Gaza Strip hit a deadlock.

There was no apparent sign of a possible extension of the calm as the truce expired.
