Two Israelis were injured today when a Palestinian rocket struck a home in Beersheba, bringing the total injured to 163 since the fighting began.
Israel says its anti-missile system - called the Iron Dome - intercepted dozens of rockets fired at suburban Tel Aviv.
ITV News Diplomatic Correspondent John Ray reports from the Israeli capital:
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.
