BBC News published this video item, entitled “Rockets hit Israel after Gaza militants killed – BBC News” – below is their description.
Palestinian militants in Gaza have fired dozens of rockets at Israel after its air strikes killed top commanders and felled another tower block there.
The escalation, which began on Monday, has triggered street violence in Israel between Jews and Israeli Arabs.
In two incidents, a Jewish man in Acre was attacked by Arab men, and a Jewish mob pulled a Palestinian out of his car and beat him up in Bat Yam.
At least 67 people in Gaza and seven people in Israel have been killed.
The fighting erupted on Monday after weeks of rising Israeli-Palestinian tension in East Jerusalem which culminated in clashes at a holy site revered by Muslims and Jews.BBC News YouTube Channel
