Despite Israel's stated decision to extend today's cease-fire by four hours, The Associated Press is reporting that Hamas officials have rejected the extension:

The cease-fire was the first lull in fighting between Israel and Hamas in more than three weeks; but a Hamas official sent a text message to reporters today that read, "No agreement to extending the calm for an additional four hours."
The Israeli military is reporting that three missiles were fired from Gaza about an hour after the initial 12-hour cease-fire ended. Officials are also warning Gaza residents against returning to or remaining in areas which had previously been under fire.- -
