Early on Tuesday, the Palestinian Red Crescent, a humanitarian group, said more than 700 Palestinians had been injured in clashes with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem and across the West Bank.
Bombardments did not abate overnight as the sound of Palestinian rockets and Israeli air strikes echoed across the region on Tuesday morning.
Israel’s military said it carried out strikes on 130 targets across the Gaza Strip. In one strike, a woman was killed and two others were injured, health officials said.
Meanwhile, Hamas fired at rocket barrage at the city of Ashkelon in southern Israel. It said this was retaliation for an Israeli attack on a civilian apartment block near Gaza city.
