Through Aaron Boxerman and dov dear

JERUSALEM — The United Nations and Egypt are urging Israel and militants in Gaza to agree on an immediate ceasefire as the two sides exchanged fire for a second straight day, raising fears of a wider conflict that will inflict suffering on civilians in the blocked Palestinian border Enclave would deepen.

The Israeli military launched renewed airstrikes against alleged Palestinian Islamic Jihadists and locations across the Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 15 people since Friday, including a senior militant commander and a 5-year-old girl. At the same time, Palestinian militants have fired hundreds of rockets at the south and center of the country, sounded air raid sirens and sent thousands of Israelis to bomb shelters.
