Israel's army has been targeting militants in the territory in response to rockets being fired into Israel. The latest flare-up in violence between the two sides comes after the Israeli killing of a senior member of a Palestinian militant group.
In addition to charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust, Israel's prime minister is battling challenges to his leadership from within his Likud party. Is this the end of Benjamin Netanyahu's political career?
Violence has flared in the Gaza Strip after Israel assassinated an Islamic Jihad leader in an airstrike. Benjamin Netanyahu has warned the group to stop the rocket attacks or "absorb more and more blows."
Barrages of rockets were fired towards southern Israel from Gaza, shortly after the Islamic Jihad group confirmed the death of Bahaa Abu el-Atta. Air-raid sirens sounded in Tel Aviv. Germany condemned the rocket fire.
Gaza's Islamic Jihad announced a cease-fire on Thursday. Shortly afterwards, Israel announced an end to military operations in the region.
