The Islamist Hamas group ruling the Gaza Strip said on Tuesday it has deployed forces to "preserve the truce" after rockets fired from the enclave hit Israel.

"National security forces have been deployed in order to preserve the truce" arranged by Egypt that came into force on November 21, 2012, interior ministry spokesman Islam Shawan told AFP.
