These incredible pictures show an Israeli bomb honing in on a target in Gaza City on Saturday. The IDF warplanes pounded the Strip over the weekend, killing five Palestinians from the same family, two children, as hostilities between Israel and Hamas showed little sign of abating, despite fresh efforts from Egypt to hold a truce. Militants fired around 40 rockets into southern Israel on Monday; the IDF said there were no casualties.
