    As diplomatic moves towards a ceasefire in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict gathered pace on Thursday, Israel kept up its bombardment of Gaza and Hamas rocket fire resumed after a pause, leaving residents skeptical.

    On Thursday, Israel carried out over a dozen airstrikes targeting what it said was a weapons storage unit in the Gaza City home of a Hamas official, and military infrastructure in the homes of other commanders from the group.

    “What we demand is no ceasefire, or anything, we either all die or all live and that’s it,” a patient who was taken to the hospital said after a strike hit his neighbour’s house in Gaza, who he said, “had nothing to do with anything, nor do we.”

    In Sderot, Israel, where a rocket launched from Gaza hit and damaged a family’s home, Albina Ben Dakon said that she believed a ceasefire wouldn’t change anything.

    “We are the main victims, we get the ‘raindrops’ of missiles, though it is true that recently and within the past few days the whole country got hit by rockets just like we always do,” she said.
