Palestinian militant organisation Hamas has rejected any extension of the three-day ceasefire in Gaza, which expired on Friday morning. It said that Israel had failed to meet its demands, including the re-opening of Gaza Harbour to shipping. Several rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel as the ceasefire ended at 08:00 local time (05:00 GMT). Israeli forces have not yet responded to the attacks. Some 1,940 people have died in four weeks of fighting in Gaza.
