Israeli newspapers say Israel launched an airstrike on a Syrian military convoy outside of Damascus. The U.S. was allegedly informed of the attack.
Israel says it has resumed military strikes in Gaza after a series of rockets were fired into its territory. The developments follow the expiry of a truce, to which Hamas has not announced an extension.
Palestinian militants marked the end of a 72-hour truce in Gaza by firing rockets at Israel. In response, the Israeli military launched fresh airstrikes on the coastal enclave.
Both the Israeli government and Hamas have accused each other of breaking an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire. An Israeli airstrike in response to militant-launched rockets killed the family of a Hamas leader.
Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected the possibility of talks with Palestinian militants until the firing of rockets from Gaza comes to an end. The civilian death toll has risen amid air strikes and shelling.
