With Israeli elections just days away, we gauge voter sentiment ahead of a contest that will likely return Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to power. But many voters are disillusioned, not excited about the prospects ahead.
The Israeli army has said that 13 of its soldiers have been killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, at least 87 Palestinians are reported to have been killed in the deadliest day so far of Israel's offensive.
The death toll in the Gaza Strip is mounting as Israel vows to expand its ground assault in the face of rocket fire from the Palestinian territory. A major attack on a Gaza district has meanwhile claimed many lives.
Israel has attacked targets in Gaza as the UN chief and the US secretary of state met in Cairo in a bid to reach a ceasefire. A UN agency reports that there is "no safe place for civilians" in Gaza to hide.
