JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel halted its fire for six hours Tuesday after accepting an Egyptian truce proposal. But with Hamas continuing to launch rockets into Israel, it resumed strikes in the afternoon.

Benjamin Netanyahu said in an evening address aired live on television that Israel has "no choice" but to respond more forcefully.

Netanyahu said "Hamas chose to continue fighting and will pay the price for that decision."

The Israeli military says Gaza militants fired close to 125 rockets since the truce was to have begun. An Israeli civilian was killed Tuesday by fire from the Gaza Strip, the first Israeli death in more than a week of fighting.
