Palestinian activist Ghada Karmi has told Daybreak that the crisis in Gaza is "a failure of the international community."
She added: "For years the international community has not taken this situation in hand."
Today's bombing in Tel Aviv is reminiscent of six years ago and could mark a serious escalation in the conflict.
A truce in Gaza suits all sides but none of the groups seem interested in a long-lasting solution.
A complex system of air defences has been instrumental in protecting Israel's population from incoming rockets.
