Israel-Gaza crisis: Palestinians downbeat on Cairo talks

Israel's military says it has carried out air strikes in the Gaza Strip in response to fresh rocket fire, hours before a ceasefire was set to expire.

Officials say 2,016 Palestinians and 66 Israelis have died since Operation Protective Edge began on 8 July.

Meanwhile talks to try to end the fighting appear to have reached a dead end in Cairo.

The head of the Palestinian delegation, Azzam al-Ahmed, accused the Israelis of trying to force their position, which was "impossible to accept".
