Rocket fire continued into the night and did not stop as Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil visited Gaza, despite talks of a temporary ceasefire. The Israeli military have been granted permission to call up to 30,000 reservist troops, prompting fears of an escalation and ground operation. Tensions have been high since last Thursday, when a 13-year-old Palestinian boy was killed during an incursion by Israeli tanks in Gaza. After being pounded by rocket fire from Gaza for almost a week, the Israelis hit back with air strikes - one of which killed Hamas' military commander Ahmed al-Jaabari. UK Foreign Secretary William Hague urged both sides to "de-escalate" and said: "When Israel has entered into ground invasions in other conflicts, that is when they have lost a good deal of international sympathy and support."
