Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have been engaged in fighting for the past two weeks, with militants firing rockets into Israel and Israel responding with air strikes. Seventeen militants have been killed, and more than 150 rockets and mortars have been fired into Israel. Israel also has responded by slamming Gaza’s border crossings shut, halting shipments of food, fuel and basic supplies into the territory.(AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)
