PM Spokesman: Rocket Fire Destroyed the Ceasefire

Mark Regev, a spokesman for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, rejected on Tuesday night the Palestinian Authority’s charges that Israel was to blame for a breakdown in ceasefire talks in Cairo.

"The Cairo process was built on a total and complete cessation of all hostilities and so when rockets were fired from Gaza, not only was it a clear violation of the ceasefire but it also destroyed the premise upon which the talks were based," Regev told Reuters.
