By Zoila Palma: The world continues to watch as tensions between Israel and Palestine are escalating.
United States President, Joe Biden told Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he expects a “significant de-escalation” in the Gaza conflict.
A statement from the White House said that the US President wanted “a path to ceasefire”.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Prime Minister has said that he is determined to carry on until “calm and security are restored to Israeli citizens.”
The exchange of rocket fire from Palestinian militants into Israel and Israeli air strikes on Gaza continue in their 10th day.
The conflict began after weeks of rising tensions in occupied East Jerusalem that culminated in clashes at a holy site revered by both Muslims and Jews.
Hamas, which controls Gaza, began firing rockets after warning Israel to withdraw from the site, triggering retaliatory air strikes.
Over 200 people have been killed in Gaza, local media report.
