Since then Palestinians in Gaza have launched over 50 rockets at Israel and at least 29 people in Israel have been treated for related injuries.
Extremely concerned about evolving security situation, with multiple rockets launched this morning," EU Ambassador to Israel Emanuele Giaufret tweeted. "A rapid deescalation is needed, indiscriminate rocket fire is unacceptable. Need to protect all civilians," he wrote.
