Push for ceasefire in Gaza Israel conflict

Violence continues in Gaza after an explosion on a bus in Israel’s commercial capital Tel Aviv, injured 10 people.

Emergency services say five of the wounded in the bus explosion are in a serious or moderate condition.

The bus was reportedly passing the military headquarters in the city at the time in what police are calling a “terrorist attack”.

Hamas reportedly “bless the attack in Tel Aviv and sees it as a natural response to the Israeli massacres… in Gaza”

The incident comes as Israel continued its strikes on Gaza, including a key compound of the Hamas government, and militants fired more rockets at Israel.

Hillary Clinton is currently meeting with Israeli leaders to discuss a peace process and will visit the West Bank and Cairo.
Palestinian sources had suggested a truce would be announced on Tuesday, but Israel said no deal was struck.
Some 136 Palestinians and five Israelis have been killed since the flare-up began eight days ago, officials say.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is also visiting leaders in the region trying to cement a ceasefire.
