Headed for war? Israel-Gaza conflict flares despite truce talks

Violence erupted again this week, with dozens of rockets fired into Israel and scores of Israeli military strikes on Gaza. A long-range rocket landed in Beersheba, the first time the city has been hit since the 2014 war. A short time later, an Israeli airstrike flattened a five-story cultural center in Gaza City. So where might things go from here? Peace talks had been underway in Egypt with new hope for progress. Could things calm down again or are we headed for all-out war?
