New bombings in Israel, Gaza amid reports of possible cease-fire


Despite potential for an imminent cease-fire, Israel launched a fresh wave of airstrikes across the Gaza Strip overnight as the Palestinian militant group Hamas resumed rocket attacks. As of Thursday, Hamas has fired more than 4,000 rockets at Israel, most intercepted by Israel's iron dome defense system. The violence between Israel and Gaza has left nearly 250 Palestinians dead.
