The heat only seems to be rising along the Gaza Strip following the deaths of Israeli and Palestinian teenagers and both sides are exchanging fire, escalating the already heightened tensions.
Palestinian militants are threatening revenge, after it claimed Israeli air strikes killed at least 9 of their comrades which would mark the highest death toll in a couple years, since a cross-border war in 2012.
Hamas said seven of its fighters were killed when a tunnel collapsed following a strike, and two others in a separate drone attack.
Israel's military has carried out strikes against 15 Hamas targets since Sunday; on Monday, it drew up a reserve 15-hundred-men strong for the first time since 2012, citing "military preparedness".
Hamas leaders have confirmed it bombarded Israel with some 40 rockets and morter fire.//
