Will fighting in Gaza trigger a wider war? | Inside Story

Fears are growing of another war over Gaza after Israel launched air strikes on the Palestinian territory.

Tension had been building since Tuesday, when Israeli forces arrested Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Bassam Al Saadi in the West Bank.

On Friday, Israeli missiles targeted Gaza, killing another Islamic Jihad commander and at least a dozen civilians.

Palestinians hit back with more than 100 rockets.
