U.S. Calling for Israel-Palestine Ceasefire as Violence Escalates

The U.S. and several nations are now calling for an immediate ceasefire as the deadly violence between Israel and Hamas enters its second week.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he doesn’t plan on letting up anytime soon.

On Monday morning, Israel launched another round of airstrikes on the Gaza strip.

Over the weekend they carried out their deadliest attack since the conflict started.

During an airstrike, Israel flattened several homes and buildings, killing at least 42 Palestinians.

Hamas launched rockets aimed at Israel in response. Most of them have been intercepted by Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system.
