Hamas has vowed to disrupt peace talks bewteen Israel and the Palestinians

A Palestinian is believed to have been killed in an IDF airstrike undertaken in retaliation for terrorists in Gaza stepping up attacks on Israel.

As Benajmin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas met for peace talks in Jerusalem, at least nine mortar shells and two rockets were sent into southern Israel, the highest daily total in six months.

One Kassam rocket exploded near the city of Ashkelon in an industrial area.

Last week a rocket landed between two day care centres.
