A Palestinian youth stands in the rubble of a building hit in an Israeli airstrike Tuesday in Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza. The Israeli military had warned residents to get out before the strike.

Israel resumed its heavy bombardment of Gaza on Tuesday and warned that Hamas "would pay the price" after the Islamic militant group rejected an Egyptian truce plan and instead unleashed more rocket barrages at the Jewish state.

Israeli police and army officers carry a piece of a Hamas rocket Tuesday in the southern city of Ashkelon.
