GAZA-ISRAEL BORDER (FOX) - It's a peaceful start to the day in the Gaza Strip on Friday giving hope that the agreed upon five-day cease-fire can last.

But Israeli tanks with armored personnel remain positioned at the border.

Israeli troops say Gaza militants did breach the truce just after midnight on Friday by firing nearly 10 rockets at them.

Israel says it responded to the attacks with airstrikes targeting rocket launchers and terror sites.

No causalities were reported and calm soon returned.

After more than a month of cross-border attacks from both sides, almost 2,000 Palestinians and nearly 70 Israelis have been killed.

Egyptian-brokered peace negotiators in Cairo are trying to come up with a solution to the conflict.
