Videos show Israeli airstrikes leveling multiple Gaza apartment buildings amid escalating violence”

Israel's bombing of Gaza has now killed 67 people, including 17 children, and over 388 have been injured in the blasts, according to the Gaza-based Palestinian Health Ministry. Seven people have been killed in Israel, medical officials said.

Israel carried out an intense barrage of airstrikes just after sunrise, striking dozens of targets in several minutes that set off bone-rattling explosions across Gaza.

President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he was hopeful that a cycle of violence between Israelis and Palestinians would end soon, after a phone conversation he had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Biden did not explain the reasons behind his optimism.

A senior USA official separately said to expect further high-level contacts, including with Jordan and Egypt, although Washington does not speak to Hamas, which it considers a terrorist group.

Israel said at least 15 of those killed were Hamas militants according to CNN.

The resolution also "reiterates its demand that Israel completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem, and that it fully respect all of its legal obligations in this regard".

World leaders have called for an end to violence. Hamas is trying to "stake a claim" as a leader of the Palestinian Authority, including in the West Bank.

Palestinians protesting in solidarity with the residents of Sheikh Jarrah have been targeted by Israeli forces.

The prime minister also alluded to an incident on Wednesday in which video footage showed a group of Jewish nationalists dragging a man who they believed to be Arab out of his vehicle and beating him in the central city of Bat Yam.

Israeli airstrikes have leveled multiple residential buildings in Gaza, videos show.

"Israel has gone insane", said a man on a Gaza street, where people ran out of their homes as explosions rocked buildings.

Israel on Thursday pressed ahead with a fierce military offensive in the Gaza Strip, killing as many as 11 senior Hamas military figures and toppling a pair of high-rise towers housing Hamas facilities in a series of airstrikes. "It's a very scary situation to be in", said Margo Aronovic, a 26-year-old student, in Tel Aviv.

At least six people have died in Israel since the start of Israeli military action on Gaza, one of them a soldier hit by a missile fired from Gaza.

USA energy corporation Chevron said it had shut down the Tamar natural gas platform off the Israeli coast as a precaution. "That needs to be said", Tlaib said Monday on MSNBC.

At least two USA airlines cancelled flights from the United States to Tel Aviv on Wednesday and Thursday. When the deadline was not met, Hamas launched a barrage of rockets into Israel, killing two. It appeared to be the first time Israel had used Ramon as a wartime alternative to Ben Gurion.

The conflict has led to the freezing of talks by Netanyahu's opponents on forming a governing coalition to unseat him after Israel's inconclusive March 23 election.

An Arab-Israeli man, who was reportedly beaten by a group of Israeli far-right nationalists on Wednesday evening, was "seriously injured but stable", the Ichilov hospital in Tel Aviv said.

Although the latest problems in Jerusalem were the immediate trigger for hostilities, Palestinians have been frustrated as their aspirations for an independent state have suffered setbacks in recent years.
