Two Israeli soldiers have been 'moderately injured' by shrapnel in a mortar attack on the West Bank, Israel's military have said.
The soldiers were airlifted to hospital by military helicopter.
The offensive has set off the heaviest fighting between Israel and Hamas since an eight-day battle in November 2012.
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.
