At least two Palestinian men were killed in the southern Gaza Strip late last night by a targeted Israeli airstrike on a car, according to Palestinians.
The Israeli military said it was looking into the incident in the town of Rafah.
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.
