The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) say Hamas is responsible for a barrage of rockets fired at cities inside Israel.
The IDF said it had now attacked a total of 200 "terror targets" in response to what it says are attacks by Hamas militants on Israeli citizens.
In response to constant rocket fire, #IDF hit 50 terror targets today making a total of 200 since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge
It's been an emotionally exhausting day in Israel and Gaza as hopes for peace were raised then dashed then raised then dashed again.
In the court of international opinion, this is how Israel wins a battle and still manages to lose the war.
Until the Israelis and the Palestinians find a way of resolving the underlining conflict this will not be more than a pause.
