The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) claims 120 rockets fired from inside the Gaza Strip have struck Israel in less than 24 hours.
The IDF also said 24 rockets were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defence system before they could reach their targets.
In less than 24 hours, more than 120 rockets fired from Gaza struck Israel; an additional 24 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome.
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.
