Israel moved troops to the Gaza Strip border, Israeli newspapers reported, as the midnight expiry of a three-day truce drew near without word of an extension.

The Ha’aretz newspaper reported that the Israeli military also called up additional reserves troops, hours after officials warned of a harsh response should rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled territory resume. The Ynet website cited unidentified military officials as saying troops were reinforced as a contingency in case truce talks failed to yield a deal. The military declined comment on the reports.
