Second day of Israeli strikes on Gaza following arrest of Palestinian militant

Israeli forces have targetted the Gaza Strip with air strikes for a second day, with Palestinian officials stating 15 people have now been killed in the current violence.

The fighting began yesterday when Israel killed a senior commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.


Palestinian militants have responded by firing more than 100 rockets across the border –  and there are fears the situation could escalate further.
