A Palestinian woman carries her belongings past the rubble of houses destroyed by Israeli strikes in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza Strip, Saturday, July 26, 2014. Thousands of Gaza residents who had fled Israel-Hamas fighting streamed back to devastated border areas during a lull Saturday, and were met by large-scale destruction: scores of homes were pulverized, wreckage blocked roads and power cables dangled in the streets. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas said it fired five rockets at Israel late Saturday after rejecting Israel's offer to extend a 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire by four hours, casting new doubt on international efforts to broker an end to 19 days of fighting.

By Michel Rose PARIS (Reuters) - Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in central Paris on Saturday when thousands of marchers defied a ban by French authorities to rally against Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip. French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve warned organizers in a television address that they would be held responsible for any clashes and could be prosecuted for ignoring a ban that was confirmed by the country's top administrative court. TV footage showed a minority of demonstrators wearing balaclavas and traditional Arab keffiyeh headdresses throwing projectiles at riot officers after two hours of peaceful protest. By 1700 GMT (13:00 EST), most demonstrators had been evacuated from the square and order restored.

GAZA (Reuters) - Militants resumed firing rockets into Israel from Gaza around two hours after the end of a 12-hour ceasefire, the armed wing of Islamist group Hamas said. Israeli police said warning sirens sounded across the country as rockets were fired as far as the Tel Aviv area. Israel had said it would extend the truce, which began at 8 a.m. (0100 EST), by four hours, but Hamas said it had not agreed to this.
