Israeli-Palestinian attacks continue

Mourners carry a coffin through the streets of Gaza of one of those killed in a weekend of violence between Palestinians and Israelis.

The cross-border conflict, which flared up after an Israeli airstrike on Friday, is ongoing and the death toll is rising.

As rockets continue to be fired into Israel, another four Palestinians have died in an Israeli airstrike on Monday – two militants and two civilians.

Earlier in the day, two Islamic Jihad members were killed in Khan Younis, and another young Palestinian died in Beit Lahiya.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barack said: “If attacks continue, we will continue to respond. It takes patience and a standing power to overcome these challenges, but we are determined to defend our civilian citizens at any moment.”

Two Israelis have been wounded and buildings damaged as rockets hit the southern port city of Ashdod. There were also rocket attacks on the neighbouring city of Beersheba.
