Three rockets have been launched from Egypt at the southern Israeli resort of Eilat, wounding four civilians, Israeli security officials have said.
The said they believed the salvo was fired by Islamist militants in the Egyptian Sinai and meant to upstage a potential ceasefire in the region.
It's been an emotionally exhausting day in Israel and Gaza as hopes for peace were raised then dashed then raised then dashed again.
