UPDATE: Israeli Forces Continue Attacks, Death Toll Rises

 After three weeks of fighting, Israeli forces continue to pound Gaza in the heaviest night of attacks.

The latest round of violence comes as Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, warns his people to prepare for a prolonged conflict against Hamas militants as the call for a truce grows louder around the world.

The two sides are trading blame for a strike on a Gaza park that killed at least nine children.

Secretary of State, John Kerry, has been pressing both sides to put down their weapons.
