Israel Palestine ceasefire distant prospect after days of violence in Gaza


Israeli forces say they’ve killed another senior leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, after the militant group fired another barrage of rockets from Gaza into southern Israel for a fifth day running.

The fighting so far has killed 33 Palestinians in Gaza and one woman in central Israel.  Egypt is still leading efforts to broker a ceasefire – but so far, making little progress.
