Israel reported its first death of the week-long conflict this evening.
A civilian, who was critically injured when a Hamas rocket struck close to the Gaza border, later died of his wounds in hospital .
Israeli leaders responded by saying they will "expand and intensify" their offensive
ITV News Diplomatic Correspondent John Ray reports:
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.
