UPDATE as of 12:42 p.m. EST: A cease-fire between Israel and Hamas has been announced for later this evening, Reuters reports.
The Israel-Hamas conflict entered in its eighth day of fighting after a bomb exploded Wednesday morning on a bus in Tel Aviv, prompting Israel to continue air strikes over Gaza. The hard-sought “calming down” from yesterday never reached an agreement as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seeks a diplomatic solution with leaders on both sides of the conflict.
Here’s the latest look into the Gaza conflict from AFP, Getty and Reuters photographers in the region. | NOTE: Some photos are graphic showing visual coverage of injury or death.
