  1. Ceasefire Fails as Rocket Kills Israeli

    A small window of hope slammed shut on Tuesday as Hamas rejected Egypt’s ceasefire proposal and an Israeli was killed by continuing rocket fire. This was the first Israeli fatality in the current conflict, during which up to 200 Palestinians have been killed. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Israel would continue its bombardment as 100,000 Gazans were warned to evacuate their homes. Israel’s Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, called for a “full takeover of the Gaza Strip.”
