The amount of casualties and attacks since the Gaza conflict started are as follows:
- 74 Palestinians, both militants and civilians, have been killed in Gaza.
- 3 Israeli civilians have been killed and 60 injured by Palestinian rockets.
- Over 1000 rockets have been fired by Gaza militants at southern Israeli communities since the start of the operation.
These figures were obtained by the Associated Press.
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.
