Israeli air strikes have killed at least nine militant fighters in the Gaza Strip as both sides exchanged fire after the death of a Palestinian teenager.
With more on that, we now turn to Paul Yi at the News Center.
Paul, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with the Palestinian teen's father on Monday, offering his condolences.
That's right. He also promised that the killers would be brought to justice and he would not allow extremists on either side to ignite conflict in the region.
But it appears the gesture wasn't enough as Hamas reportedly fired dozens of rockets over the border, prompting this latest retaliation from Israel's armed forces.
The violence follows the arrest of six Jewish suspects in connection with the abduction and murder of 17-year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair.
Security sources say that figure could rise depending on how the investigation develops.
Authorities believe Abu Khudair was murdered by far-right Israelis as revenge for three Israeli teenagers who were killed last month.
