STORYLINE:

Israeli airstrikes were targeting areas of Gaza from where rockets have been fired while Israeli army tanks were seen on the outskirts of Jerusalem heading towards the south of the country.

After five days of fighting, the Palestinian death toll has topped 120. Gaza militants have fired nearly 700 rockets and mortars toward Israel.

The Iron Dome, a U.S.-funded, Israel-developed rocket defence system, has intercepted more than 130 incoming rockets, preventing any Israeli fatalities so far.

More than 920 Palestinians have been wounded, according to a spokesperson at the Gaza Health Ministry.

The outbreak of violence follows the kidnappings and killings of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, and the kidnapping and killing of a Palestinian teenager in an apparent revenge attack.
