Israel ramps up Gaza assault and Hamas rocket fire continues, as conflict enters fifth day

International Editor

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.

Warning: The report has distressing scenes from the start.
