Israel launches offensive in Gaza

ATS24. Gaza Border (Israel), 27/07/2014.- Israeli soldier on a Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) ready their gear in a staging area, very close to the Gaza Strip border, in southern Israel, 27 July 2014. On the 20th day of fighting in Gaza, Palestinian and Israeli casualties are mounting amid signs of a deepening political stalemate driven by halting diplomatic efforts and an unwillingness by the warring parties to budge on key issues. In Israel, many are opposed to a premature, temporary truce that they say would give Hamas and other armed groups in the Gaza Strip time to recover and prepare more deadly traps and ambushes for Israeli. In the Gaza Strip, too, many are unwilling to budge on concessions including an easing of the blockade and improved economic opportunities for Palestinians. EFE/EPA/ABIR SULTAN
