    Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is vowing to unleash more airstrikes in Gaza, where dozens have been killed in clashes between Israeli forces and Hamas commanders.

    As Eric Sorensen reports, fears are growing that decades-long tensions between Israeli’s and Palestinians over Jerusalem could soon erupt into war.

    Plus, we’re getting a clearer picture on what life is like for Palestinians living in Jerusalem, as deadly violence shakes one of the holiest cities in the world.

    Nusa Musleh, a freelance reporter in Jerusalem, has the stories of citizens caught in the conflict.

    Israel killed a string of senior Hamas military figures Wednesday and pounded three multistory towers as it hammered the Gaza Strip with airstrikes. Militants in the territory fired rocket barrages back into Israeli positions. Dozens have died in the worst violence since a 2014 war, with no resolution in sight.

    The fighting has taken on many hallmarks of that devastating 50-day conflict between Israel and Hamas, but with a startling new factor: a burst of fury from Israel’s Palestinian citizens in support of those living in the territories as well as counter violence by Jewish Israelis.
