Israel was hit with 72 rockets on Sunday and its Iron Dome defense system has intercepted 12 more, the countries military tweeted.
So far today, 72 rockets fired from Gaza hit Israel; 12 more were intercepted by the Iron Dome. Since July 8, 707 rockets have hit Israel.
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.
