Israeli air strikes hit Gaza after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel's military campaign may be extended. Gavino Garay reports.
Amid the air strikes and rocket attacks - raging again now that the latest Gaza truce is over - a war of words has broken out between leaders of Israel and Hamas.
An Israeli air raid on Gaza City did not succeed in killing Mohammed Deif, the military chief of Hamas, the group's armed wing has said although the strike did claim the lives of his wife and infant child.
Several thousand mourners have joined the funeral procession for the wife and baby son of Hamas' military commander Mohammed Deif. At least 45 others were injured in the same airstrike that killed the pair. Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from Gaza.
