    German foreign minister Heiko Mass has arrived in Israel and will later also visit the Palestinian territories in the hope of brokering a peace agreement between the two parties. Overnight, more rockets were fired from Gaza – and Israel launched another series of airstrikes early this morning. Despite this, a senior Hamas official says he expects Israel and Gaza militants to reach a ceasefire within ‘a day or two’. For now though, cross-border attacks continue.

    Since the fighting started ten days ago, more than 200 people have been killed. Many of the victims are children.
