An Israeli military officer has asked ITV News to leave the area, as tanks were spotted amassing near the Gaza border.
ITV News Diplomatic Correspondent John Ray reports from Israel:
Politely told to leave by officer. 'This is closed military zone'. troops weren't here when we drove past yesterday. http://t.co/FyhpXMevlx
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.
