GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – Israel’s army says Gaza militants have fired nine rockets at Israel.

Wednesday’s rocket fire came just two days before militants say a truce along the Gaza border is to expire.

The rockets were fired by three small militant groups and caused no injuries.

Gaza’s Hamas rulers say the truce with Israel ends Friday. Israel says there’s no expiration date.

In an case, the cease-fire has been badly shaken, as both sides try to dictate new terms.

Hamas wants Israel to keep its crossings open. The borders have been mostly sealed since Hamas seized power of Gaza last year. Israel wants to be able to conduct incursions into Gaza’s border areas.
