Updated: Tuesday, July 15 2014, 04:50 AM EDT
JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says Gaza militants have fired three rockets at Israel since the deadline passed for the start of a cease-fire proposed by Egypt.

The attack came shortly after Israel on Tuesday morning accepted the Egyptian truce proposal, which Gaza's Hamas rulers swiftly rejected.

Under the Egyptian plan, hostilities were to halt by 9 a.m. local time.

The military says three rockets were fired at empty lands near the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. The military says they caused no casualties or damage.
