    It’s the fifth day of fighting in Israel and Gaza and shortly before dawn, Israel launched its most substantial bombardment of the week.

    A 40-minute offensive in which an entire family of six were killed, according to authorities in Gaza. Palestinian militants have fired a barrage of rockets into Israel.

    International efforts to broker a ceasefire have so far failed, as Jewish and Arab mobs continue to clash in Israeli towns, despite Israel flooding the areas with security forces.
