iStockphoto/Thinkstock(JERUSALEM) -- A 12-hour cease-fire between Israel and Hamas ended on Saturday, and despite efforts to negotiate an extension, no deal was reached.

The two sides had been discussing a four-hour extension of the humanitarian truce. During the 12 hour truce, Palestinians in Gaza stocked up on supplies and retrieved the bodies of the dead.

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the death toll includes over 1,000 people killed in Gaza. The Israel Defense Forces notes that three more soldiers were killed in combat since Friday night, bringing the total number of Israeli deaths to 43, including 40 soldiers.
