Israeli leader recalls team from cease-fire talks
By Josef Federman, The Associated Press
JERUSALEM - An Israeli official says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered negotiators at cease-fire talks to return home from Cairo following rocket fire by Palestinian militants.
The Israeli move, coupled with the outbreak of violence, threw Egyptian efforts to arrange a long-term cease-fire into jeopardy.
The official said the Egyptian-hosted talks with Hamas militants are based on the "premise" that there will be no violence.
The official said: "They are breaking the cease-fire. They are breaking the premise of the talks." The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to journalists.
Egypt has been hosting indirect talks meant to end a monthlong war. The talks face a midnight deadline. Palestinian militants fired two barrages of rockets Tuesday, sparking Israeli airstrikes in Gaza in retaliation.
