Rockets fired from the Gaza Strip crashed into Israel Friday, the army said, less than four hours from the scheduled expiry of a three-day truce.

"Just now, two rockets fired from Gaza hit southern Israel. No injuries reported," the army said in a text message to journalists ahead of the 0500 GMT deadline for the truce to be renewed or end.

"Terrorists have violated the cease-fire," it added on its official Twitter site.
