Funerals Held for Slain Israeli Teens

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says Gaza militants have fired five more rockets at southern Israel.

Tuesday's rocket fire comes shortly after Israel buried three teenagers who were abducted in the West Bank nearly three weeks ago.

The army says no one was hurt by the rocket fire. But it adds to already heightened tensions between Israel and the Hamas militant group.

Israel has accused Hamas of being behind the deadly abductions, and it has been carrying out nightly airstrikes in Hamas-controlled Gaza in response to repeated rocket fire.

In all, the army says 10 rockets have been fired at Israel on Tuesday.
