The UN security Council will meet at 10am tomorrow morning to discuss ongoing Israel and Palestinian hostilities.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is likely to brief the 15-member body, diplomats said.
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.
