Lull in Gaza rocket fire, Israel keeps up strikes
Saturday - 11/17/2012, 11:52pm EST
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - Rocket fire from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip has subsided as cease-fire efforts appear to be gaining momentum.
But the Israeli military is pressing ahead with its offensive against Palestinian rocket squads there.
The Israeli military said Sunday morning that Gaza militants haven't attacked Israel since the night before.
The lull coincides with Egyptian-led efforts to negotiate an end to the 5-day-old confrontation.
Israel is reluctant to let up without signs a truce would hold. Military aircraft attacked smuggling tunnels and other targets across Gaza, including a media building.
A Gaza health official said two Gaza teen-agers were killed when another building was hit.
Thousands of Israeli troops are massed near the Gaza border, meanwhile, awaiting an order to invade should Israeli leaders decide to widen the operation.
