Two Palestinian were killed on Wednesday as renewed attacks between Israel and Gaza continue to intensify, an Al Arabiya correspondent reported the Gaza Health Ministry as saying.
In response, Islamic Jihad militants fired about 200 rockets into Israel throughout the day. Further Israeli airstrikes on the militant group’s targets in Gaza killed eight more Palestinians.
It appeared that Hamas, the main militant group that rules Gaza, was staying out of the fighting for now. A diplomatic source told Reuters the U.N. Middle East envoy was on his way to Cairo to begin mediation to end the violence.
