Missile attacks on Israel and Palestinian Territories

For days now, Israel and the Palestinian territories have been troubled. Since last night, violence has become even worse: bombs and missiles have been fired and killed and wounded.

For a while, you heard a lot less from the area, but thats different since last week. An Israeli judge decided that a number of Palestinian families should leave their homes. The judge wants them to make way for Israelis.

There was a lot of criticism of that decision. Palestinians went out to the streets and the Israeli police intervened hard. Since last night, violence has only gotten worse.


According to the latest reports, 28 deaths were killed in the Palestinian region of Gaza, including 10 children. Missiles are also being fired from the Gaza Strip on Israeli territory, with two women being killed.

Many countries want the fighting to stop, but the question is whether that will happen.
