Israel hit hundreds of Hamas targets in Gaza today, as militants there fired rockets into southern Israel. The Palestinians reported at least 16 deaths in Gaza.
Neither side has shown any sign of halting the fiercest fighting since an eight-day battle in 2012. This latest fighting was sparked by the killing of three Israeli teenagers and the revenge killing of a Palestinian teen.
