More Gaza fighting amid fears Cairo truce talks could collapse

Text size Aa Aa

With Gaza truce talks deadlocked, air-strikes and rocket attacks persist and renewed fighting between Israel and Hamas continues to claim victims.

An Israeli air-strike on a car in the southern Gaza town of Rafah left two dead on Saturday, a day on which at least nine Palestinians were killed, according to local medics. At the same time, militants fired rockets at Israel.

In Tel Aviv on Saturday some 200 Israelis protested against the Gaza war entering its second month, despite an initial ban citing military restrictions on public gatherings in cities targeted by rocket fire.

Until that fire stops, Israel refuses to resume ceasefire negotiations, prompting a Palestinian threat to walk away from the talks.

In Israel, there is broad public backing for the war and about two dozen war supporters in Tel Aviv held a counter-protest.

There were no reports of clashes between the two groups.
