ITV News Correspondent John Ray is in Ashkelon:
Not sure about ceasefire but the rockets are still in the air. Two downed by iron dome in Ashkelon in past couple of minutes.
Just chatting to locals after alert and attitudes@maybe hardened. A couple of 'time to send the troops in' responses
Ashkelon cops say there were five rockets. Three shot down, one landed in open area, one hit this house. No one hurt http://t.co/juedJCmdJL
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.
