Sirens have been heard in Tel Aviv and across central Israel this morning during what appeared to be a heavy rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, Reuters reported.
Israel said that Hamas has dozens of long-range rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel than ever before.
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.
